Gas Prices Holding The Line

By Jim McCoy Tue 14th January NewsOregon gas prices
According to AAA Oregon/Idaho, gas prices are holding steady in most markets. The national average for regular unleaded falls half a cent this week to $3.31 a gallon while the Oregon average slips one-and-a-half cents to $3.33. Prices in 35 states, including Oregon, and Washington D.C. are less expensive than a week ago, but the declines have been small. The national average is seven-and-a-half cents more than a month ago, and four-tenths of a cent more than a year ago. The Oregon average is five cents more than a month ago, and two-tenths of a cent less than a year ago. Retail pump prices have increased an average of 11 cents per gallon during the previous three years in January. Gasoline demand often reaches a low during the month as fewer people drive in cold winter weather. Prices generally rise towards February as refineries begin seasonal maintenance.
