You’re Pumping The Cheapest Gas in Wa as We Start a Holiday Week
Are you traveling this holiday week? As millions get ready for a road trip for Thanksgiving officials at GasBuddy say "the national average is seeing its longest streak of declines in over a year, reaching a ninth straight week as gas prices fall to their lowest since January."
LOWERING PRICES FOR YOUR HOLIDAY TRAVEL
Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy says
"GasBuddy now counts over 65,000 stations with a price of $2.99 per gallon or lower, while 11 states are seeing average prices below $3. In addition, we could see five more states join the sub-$3 club by Thanksgiving. The fall in gas prices, largely seasonal due to weakening gasoline demand, could extend for another week or two, leading to potentially the lowest gas prices since 2021 by Christmas."

Officials at GasBuddy say prices in Yakima have fallen 4.3 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.94 per gallon, according to GasBuddy's survey of 91 stations in Yakima.
