AMARILLO -- Amarillo gas prices fell 3.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.17/g.
The national average that has fallen 1.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.43/g.
"With Labor Day right around the corner, most Americans will be seeing the lowest prices of the summer," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "And the good news doesn't end there, the national average is at its lowest levels for this time of year since 2010, when prices averaged $2.65/gallon nationally during Labor Day weekend."
Amarillo gas prices are now 23.0 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and 14.6 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
The national average has decreased 10.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 10.5 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
"While most Americans won't have access to sub-$3 prices, a few hundred gas stations, mainly in the southern U.S., are offering gasoline under $3/gallon today. And for those motorists in areas where gas prices tend to be high: just 1.5% of gas stations in the U.S. are selling for more than $4/gallon, so even California is in on the party at the pump," DeHaan said.
