PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — The average price of gas in the Peoria area dropped about seven cents a gallon since last week.
According to a GasBuddy survey of 148 stations in Peoria, the average price of gas is currently about $3.44 a gallon. This is about 27 cents cheaper than a month ago and 77 cents cheaper than this time last year.
The cheapest gas in Peoria was about $2.96 a gallon, while the most expensive was $3.99 a gallon.
The average price of gas in the state is about $3.53 a gallon, while the average price of gas across the U.S. is $3.45.
“Average gasoline prices have fallen for a sixth straight week in nearly every state, with the national average now at its lowest level since March,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. For now, I believe we could see a further 10-20 cent drop in the national average in the weeks ahead, but any jolt in the delicate Middle East still holds the potential to disrupt the drop we’re seeing.”
