GAS PRICES VARY IN OUR REGION PDF Print
Wednesday, 26 June 2013 06:21

Just weeks after prices in the Midwest soared to new or near-record highs on

regional supply and production issues, prices have just as dramatically reversed

course, as refinery issues have been resolved and retail prices have come plummeting

back to earth. Lingering production issues in the Chicago market, notably

maintenance at the ExxonMobil refinery in Joliet, Ill., and the BP refinery in

Whiting, Ind., had delayed price relief for some Great Lakes states, but with

production coming back online the relief has been as swift as it has been welcome.

The largest one-week drops nationwide have been Mich. (-30 cents), Ind. (-27 cents),

Ohio (-24 cents) and Wisc. (-24 cents).

 

Today’s national average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $3.554 per gallon.

The national average has now declined for 13 straight days.

 

 

 

This week’s West Central Kentucky average price:        $ 3.453

Average price during the week of June 18,  2013:        $ 3.546

The following is a list of the average price of unleaded self-serve gasoline in
