Gas Prices Still Experiencing Winter Downturn
Average retail gasoline prices in Yakima have fallen three cents per gallon in the past week averaging $3.26 per gallon according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 91 gas outlets in Yakima.
The national average has also fallen 2.2 cents to $3.27 per gallon in the same time frame.
Yakima prices are 1.3 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and 0.9 cents higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 4.7 cents per gallon during the past month and stands one cent per gallon higher than this day one year ago.
"The national average has picked up some downward momentum over the last week," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "It's likely that during this week, we will see gasoline prices again drop below their year ago levels yet again."
