The average price for gasoline in Yakima has dropped by 2.7 cents per gallon and stands at $4.57 per gallon today, according to GasBuddy's survey of 91 stations in the area.

IF YOU PUMP DIESEL THE PRICES ARE UP AGAIN
However, the same cannot be said for diesel prices as they have risen by 9.9 cents per gallon in the last week nationally, and now stand at $4.53 per gallon, according to GasBuddy reports.
ONCE AGAIN A SHORT DRIVE TO WAPATO GETS YOU THE CHEAPEST GAS IN THE STATE

That's a difference of $1.46 per gallon between the cheapest and most expensive gas stations in Yakima. The lowest price for gas in the state yesterday was $3.73 in Wapato, while the highest was $5.75 per gallon, a difference of $2.02.
EVEN THE NATIONAL PRICE IS DOWN THIS WEEK
The national average price for gasoline has also fallen in the last week by 3.1 cents per gallon and now averages $3.80 per gallon today. However, this is an increase of 1.3 cents per gallon from a month ago and 13.6 cents per gallon higher than a year ago according to GasBuddy data, which has compiled more than 11 million weekly price reports covering over 150,000 gas stations nationwide. The drop in gasoline prices in Yakima may be good news for drivers, but it is important to keep an eye on rising diesel prices as they may affect the transportation costs of goods and services in the area.
