How gas prices have changed in North Carolina in the last week

The national average cost for a gallon of gasoline dipped over the past week, reaching a price lower than at the same point in any of the previous two years. It's the lowest they've been since the Russia-Ukraine war began in 2022, sending prices soaring well above normal levels for much of that year.

Lackluster demand, rising inventory in the U.S., and decisions by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to phase out cuts to production are among the factors that account for the lower prices.

The lowest gas prices this week can be found in the Gulf Coast states. States including Indiana, Alaska, Illinois, Florida, Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan have seen prices drop by 13 cents or more over the past week—the largest price drops in the country.
