kit

Average retail gasoline prices in Yakima have risen 7.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.63 per gallon yesterday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 91 gas outlets in Yakima. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.8 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.70 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Yakima during the past week, prices yesterday were 19.5 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 33.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 21.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 0.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

“Gasoline prices have continued to remain relatively stable in the last week, falling a few cents per gallon, providing well needed relief to motorists,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Perhaps more noteworthy, however, is the fact that current average gasoline prices have now fallen under their year ago levels. And perhaps the best news is that the national average will likely continue to decline in most areas east of the Rockies in the week ahead as wholesale gasoline prices have given up ground,” DeHaan said.
