Gas prices stabilize in Louisiana, nationally

Louisiana gas prices are unchanged  in the past week, averaging $1.85/g today, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 2,436 stations. Gas prices in Louisiana are 0.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 47.2 cents per gallon lower than a year ago. The cheapest station in Louisiana is priced at $1.59/g today while the most expensive is $2.89/g, a difference of $1.30/g.

“Impressively and for a fifth straight week, average gas prices have remained quiet, with prices fluctuating less than a few cents per gallon over the last month. While it’s been a bit of a bore, it’s certainly still to motorists advantage as prices remain at their lowest seasonally in well over a decade,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

The national average price of gasoline is unchanged  in the last week, averaging $2.17/g today. The national average is unchanged  from a month ago and stands 53.0 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

“Gasoline demand looks to be trending higher, but just barely, which could eventually end the stable gas prices. For now, heading into the last few weeks of summer, I don’t think we’ll see the national average eclipse $2.25 per gallon, so if you’re making plans for Labor Day, that will mean just about everyone is in the $2 per gallon range, with the exception of California and Hawaii. It won’t be a bad time if you’re choosing to hit the road, as over a dozen states still have average gas prices under $2 per gallon,” said De Haan.
