Gas Prices Fall Across Montana – Same Results Expected Come Holiday Season
Even though a majority of states saw gasoline prices jumping over the last week, Petroleum Analyst Will Speer said the same could not be said for Montana. Across the board, Montanans have seen close to a four-cent decrease in gas prices.
"Right about now, you're expecting to pay $2.44 for gasoline. That's still above the national average of $2.31," Spear said. "Montana, although they went down, the price of gasoline across the United States went up actually two cents, so you're making headway national average race."
Spear said compared to last year, gas prices are 94.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 17.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
"In the next week, I don't think this momentum that we're seeing in the downward fall of gas prices is going to let up, so I still see another good week of savings for motorists," Spear said.
Spear said with winter in the forefront, motorists should look forward to even lower prices this holiday season.
