Montana Fuel Prices Plateau While National Average Dips
Gas prices nationwide dipped a little during the third full week of June, but the same can’t be said for prices in Montana.
“Prices haven’t changed a whole lot, in fact they’ve increased just one tenth of a penny, rising to about $3.61 a gallon,” said GasBuddy.com Petroleum Analyst Patrick Dehaan. “That’s virtually identical to where prices stood a week ago. So, not a lot of fluctuation in gas prices across Montana. Prices may begin to inch downward in the week ahead. One thing that is for sure is that they probably won’t increase. They will either remain virtually unchanged, or they may start decreasing. A lot of that is due to decline in oil prices that started last week.”
Gasoline Prices in Montana are about three cents more expensive than the national average and are one cent per gallon more expensive than they were the same time last year.
