Montana's gas prices fell drastically over the last week, knocking another eight cents off of the cost of a gallon of gas. The average price per gallon in the state is currently around three dollars and fifty cents, but the big question is whether or not prices will keep falling. Petroleum analyst for Patrick DeHaan says that the answer is "yes," and that prices will most likely keep falling for the next couple weeks despite last Friday's posting of a seven dollar-per-barrel increase on oil.

Montana is still paying 13 cents more on gas than the national average, but the gap is quickly closing. Prices in the state are 13 cents cheaper than they were on the same day last year and 25 cents cheaper than Montanans were paying just last month.
