Gas prices take a mid spring dive

Average US gas price drops 5 cents, as crude cost falls

The average price in Columbia is $2.04 per gallon, and in Myrtle Beach the cost is just under $2.06 per gallon.

AAA says the lowest average price was about $2.24 per gallon in the Flint area.

Average retail gasoline prices in Dayton have fallen 9.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.14 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 391 gas outlets in Dayton.

The most expensive is at a station in Evansville, where gas is $2.59 per gallon.

AAA of MI reports the drop here was 8 cents for a statewide average of $2.34/gallon. Prices on Saturday locally were still 8.4¢ higher than on the same day one year ago, but 13.3¢ cheaper than this time last month.

AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins states, "Gas prices are falling due to continued high production rates from USA refineries, moderate demand and a recent drop in crude oil prices".

The state's cheapest gasoline, $2.64 a gallon, was reported in Anchorage. In February, gas prices were 54 cents higher than the year before, now the difference is down to 16 cents.

The average price of gasoline in Rhode Island is 10 cents higher than it was at this time previous year.

Gasoline prices usually increase in the spring because refineries make changes needed to produce summer gasoline blends and demand increases as more people start taking trips.
