South Dakota’s gas price average is at its lowest point in six weeks 
 
 
July 13, 2016  Pump prices nationwide have now fallen for 30 straight days – the longest streak since August/September of last year – and are at their lowest mark for this date since 2004. Today’s national average for regular gasoline is $2.23 per gallon, four cents less than a week ago, fifteen cents below the price one month ago, and 53 cents cheaper than one year ago. Approximately a quarter of gas stations nationwide – 25,000 – are now selling gasoline for less than $2. Today, for the first time since June 1, South Dakota’s statewide average for regular gasoline hit $2.31 per gallon,” said Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota. “However, if you’re traveling in or through Sioux Falls, you might want to fill-up there for $2.10 per gallon. The city wide average for Rapid City is 32 cents higher according to GasPrices.AAA.com.” The nation’s least expensive states are South Carolina ($1.93), Oklahoma ($2.00), Mississippi ($2.00), Missouri ($2.01) and Alabama ($2.02).
The West Coast remains the most expensive region in the country, led by California ($2.88), Hawaii ($2.83), Washington ($2.67), Alaska ($2.66) and Nevada ($2.57). Gasoline prices are poised to continue their slide this week as both crude oil and wholesale gasoline prices turned lower last week. West Texas Intermediate and Brent crude were each down more than 7% last week, with WTI falling from $48.99 to $45.41 over the course of the holiday-shortened trading week. The price of oil currently reflects slightly more than half the price of gasoline at the pump, so lower oil prices are expected to result in lower retail gas prices for drivers. Additionally, the most recent Department of Energy report cited domestic gasoline production as just 100,000 barrels per day short of the all-time record, lending further momentum to falling prices. Although retail gas prices may continue to slide this month, there are a number of factors that could cause prices to rise again,” said Buskohl. “These includes an increase in the global price of crude oil due to disruptions in supply; stronger than expected economic indicators or geopolitical tensions overseas; as well as domestic factors such as refinery issues, production cuts due to lower prices, stronger than anticipated demand or hurricanes that could impact distribution and production.”
