Though prices went up a smidgen during the last days of December, Montana gas still sits at $3 per gallon and state residents have something to be thankful for when it comes to fuel prices.

“Oil prices across the state of Montana increased ever so slightly, rising about eight tenths of a penny, but that’s much better than what we saw with the national average, which jumped quite a bit more: a whopping five cents per gallon in the last week,” said Petroleum Analyst Patrick Dehaan. “Still, Montana is holding onto the lowest average statewide price of any state in the nation.”

Dehaan said the lowest prices in the state (around $2.88) could be found in Bozeman and that the prospects for 2014 looked good for motorists.

“2014 looks to be a better year than 2013, which is a trend that we’ve been seeing over the last few years. That is, yearly averages at the pump have been coming down. Now we still have seen volatility certainly, but looking at a yearly basis 2013 saw lower prices than 2012 and we expect that 2014 will bring much the same.”
