Average gas prices in Montana have fallen almost two cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.58 compared to the national average that has fallen roughly one cent per gallon in the last week to $3.43 per gallon. Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan with said just like the past few weeks, there hasn’t been a whole lot to analyze:

“Prices actually did fall about nine-tenths of a penny which is pretty much chump change in the grand scheme of things,” DeHaan said. “Prices in Montana declined to about $3.59 per gallon on average. That’s pretty much where they’ve been for the last few weeks. Prices around the state among the lowest in Helena $3.39 per gallon and in Great Falls $3.48.”

DeHaan said including the change in gas prices in Montana during the past week, prices Monday were about 12 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are roughly two cents per gallon lower than a month ago.

“And that’s what we expect for this week as well,” DeHaan said. “Very little price change or fluctuation. We’re still in the summer driving season, although we continue to get closer to the end of it. Prices should decline more so in September and October. A better time I should say is mid to late September, October and November. Right now it’s really kind of quiet at the pump. It probably will stay that way this week. There’s not a whole lot of change expected.”

DeHaan said despite steady prices, there is light at the end at the end of the tunnel! Prices are expected to drop within the next few weeks.
