Gasoline prices in Tacoma have fallen 3.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.11 per gallon, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 271 stations in Tacoma. This compares with the national average that has fallen 6.6 cents per gallon versus last week to $2.25 per gallon.
“As the national average price of gasoline continues to test multi-year lows, U.S. motorists are keeping over $250 million in their pocket every single day versus 80 days ago. The plunge has seen sub-$2 gas prices show up at over a third of all gas stations in the country while eleven states have seen average prices dip under the $2 level. The most common price at gas stations in the U.S. is now $1.99 per gallon while the second most common price is just $1.89,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “With the plunge perhaps continuing for another couple weeks, many motorists have been asking how long this trend will continue into 2019- and the answer is that it’s complicated but possible summer gas prices won’t be anywhere near this low…”
