AMARILLO -- Amarillo fell again, averaging $3.21/g in the past week.
"With the summer driving season behind us, motorists can look forward to a national average for gasoline that soon resumes its decline," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
The national average increased by 0.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.43/g.
"Falling demand and an impending change back to cheaper winter will begin to weigh on current gasoline prices in the next few weeks and by mid-September, much of the nation should see gasoline prices falling once again."
Amarillo gas prices are now 28.5 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 5.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
"By October, the national average will likely have declined another 5-10 cents per gallon, and by Halloween, we could see a national average lower than the $3.31/gal we saw to start 2014, DeHaan said.
The national average has decreased 7.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 16.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
