Gas prices are at $2.18, maintaining prices that have stabilized for the past few weeks and are currently the same prices as a month ago and are 41 cents cheaper than a year ago.
The minimal change reflects the slow movement at pumps across the country on the week, according to AAA. The vast majority of states saw pump prices fluctuate by a penny, if at all.
A few states in the mid-Atlantic and midwest saw more significant jumps, including North Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia, while Indiana holds the spot for the largest weekly decrease, AAA has said. The increase in these states could be a result of increased demand, but nationally demand saw a one week decline.
The nation’s top 10 largest weekly changes North Carolina (up 7 cents), Kentucky (up 6 cents), Virginia (up 5 cents), West Virginia (up 5 cents), Indiana (down 5 cents), Illinois (up 3 cents), Michigan (up 3 cents), Wisconsin (down 3 cents), South Dakota (up 2 cents) and Iowa (up 2 cents).
Meanwhile, the nation’s least expensive markets are Mississippi ($1.83), Louisiana ($1.86), Arkansas ($1.87), Alabama ($1.88), Texas ($1.88), Oklahoma ($1.88), Missouri ($1.90), Tennessee ($1.91), South Carolina ($1.92) and Kansas ($1.97).
