Drivers might be in luck, as gas prices continue to remain steady
Energy experts say there could be relief for drivers this holiday season
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - The average gasoline price in South Dakota has fallen 12.2 cents per gallon in the last week, coming in at $3.36 per gallon. Prices are 24.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. But that relief is relative as gas prices still stand 12.4 cents higher than a year ago.
According to Dakota News Now, the cheapest gas price in South Dakota is at a station between Sioux Falls and Dell Rapids at $2.89.
“Actually, it’s been staying steady, and we haven’t had a price increase for at least, I think, three weeks. Since they’ve been steady for as long as they have I don’t think they’re going to go up as much. If they go up, there probably will be an increase,” said a Sinclair sales associate, Polly Clarke.
Patrick De Haan, an energy expert at GasBuddy.com, said that it’s possible the national average price of gasoline could fall under $3 per gallon by Christmas.
