How gas prices have changed in Indiana in the last week

The national average for a gallon of gasoline is below the levels it was a year ago at $3.32 per gallon, bringing relief for consumers who absorbed record prices at the pump earlier in 2022.

Russia's invasion of Ukraine and subsequent weaponization of natural resources threw oil markets into disarray at the start of the year. Prices have been falling since hitting a peak of $5 a gallon, on average, in mid June.

Also helping push the price of gas down is lower global demand due to China's zero-COVID lockdowns, which are now being eased worrying scientists who believe there could be mass death in the coming months.
