How gas prices have changed in Louisville in the last week

Six states including Georgia are now seeing average prices below $3 per gallon of gasoline as prices continue their nearly two-month consecutive decline.

That’s despite market fears over conflict in the Middle East spilling over into retail gas prices for consumers. Drops in demand for gas have kept prices in check this fall, along with the cheaper seasonal blends of fuel being sold.

In some states, those prices are the lowest they’ve been all year. GasBuddy analyst Patrick De Haan forecasts that California could see gas prices fall below $5 per gallon in the next few weeks, marking a low point for a state where drivers typically pay among the highest prices.

“While the national average is now at its lowest since March, the decline is likely to continue for at least another couple of weeks,” De Haan said in a statement Monday.
