Gas Prices Starting To Slightly Decline
Sonora, CA — Ahead of the Christmas holiday and a busy anticipated travel period, the average U.S. price of regular unleaded gasoline dropped by six cents over the past two weeks.
The nationwide average price is $3.41 per gallon. The Lundberg Survey, which tracks gas prices, says the decline is because of a recent fall in crude oil prices.
California has the highest gas taxes and overall prices. The average price in the San Francisco Bay Area is $4.77 per gallon. The lowest average price, nationwide, is in Houston, Texas at $2.83 per gallon.
The myMotherLode.com gas price section shows that regular unleaded is selling locally between $4.27 and $4.89.
