Montana Fuel Now More Expensive Than the National Average

Gas prices at the pump in Montana went up one cent over the past week, which is more movement than the price has seen in over a month. While Montana’s price has been frozen, the national price has taken a downturn, leading to a national price that is now lower than Montana’s average price by a penny.

Montanans are now spending about $3.78 cents per gallon as the state makes the shift to using winter fuel, which is a few cents cheaper per gallon than the summer mix.

Missoulian’s, on the other hand are only spending about $3.69 per gallon.

“The national average has again seen a decrease in the last week, as California joins much of the rest of the United States in seeing lower prices,” said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Even though there hasn’t been a massive decline in California retail prices, the fact that prices have stopped rising there has helped tip the national average lower.”

DeHaan predicts that Montana’s price will either continue holding still or “decrease ever so slightly.”
