How gas prices have changed in Louisville in the last week

Cold temperatures are keeping gasoline prices low this week. National average gas prices reached their lowest level since 2021, according to GasBuddy. The company’s analyst isn’t ruling out a $2.99 national average price for a gallon of gas in the coming weeks. Gasoline inventories are also sitting 8% above the levels they were a year ago—another factor keeping pump prices reasonably low.

Many metro areas in the Midwest and South are already enjoying gas prices below $3 per gallon, according to AAA data. West Coast drivers, however, could see gas prices tick upward sooner rather than later given that refineries have begun clearing out winter fuel blends to make way for more environmentally friendly and costlier warm-weather blends.
