North Dakota gas prices reach lowest levels since summer
Gas prices have been on a slow, but steady decline since Oct. 1
FARGO (KVRR) – North Dakota gas prices have sunk to their lowest level since June. The state average dropped 3 cents last week to an average price of $2.02 per gallon.
Gas prices have been on a slow, but steady decline since Oct. 1 when the statewide average stood at $2.07. North Dakota AAA says it appears that trend will continue and says the statewide average will fall below $2 this week.
AAA says concerns about coronavirus and the reinstatement of lockdown policies are driving prices down.
Last year at this time crude was about $20 per barrel more expensive. The statewide average was around $2.55 per gallon.
Nationally, the gas price average at the start of November ($2.12) has not been this cheap since 2004.
