How gas prices have changed in Elizabethtown in the last week

Gasoline prices continue to fall around the U.S. despite the growing conflict in oil-producing regions of the world. The national average cost for a gallon of gas dropped 10 cents over the last week and is down nearly 30 cents since last month, according to AAA data.

“The downward momentum has indeed gained steam, with the national average declining over the last week with again virtually every village, town, city, region, and state seeing gasoline prices fall—with the added bonus that diesel prices have also declined,” GasBuddy analyst Patrick De Haan said in a statement Monday.

The end of the summer travel months typically comes with a slowdown in demand for gas and a subsequent drop in prices. This year, however, Wall Street is concerned consistently higher prices over the last two years have finally worn out consumers who are trying to stay off the road to save money.
