Gas Prices Are Going Down In Montana

BOZEMAN -

The pain at the pump is getting less painful across Montana.

AAA said the state average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.22, with prices even lower in cities such as Bozeman.

Price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is at $3.09 at many gas stations in Bozeman Tuesday.

That's well below the national average of $3.24 a gallon.

Kelsea Benton of AAA's Bozeman office says that's because Bozeman is one of Montana's larger cities.

"Some of the more rural areas in the state may not have as low of prices of gas because they have to travel farther to get the gas," said Benton.

Benton credited a much lower demand for the drop in gas prices.

"We typically see a decrease after Labor Day because people stop driving as much," said Benton.

Dylan Radovich said he just hopes the trend will continue until he is able to go on an upcoming trip.

"It would be nice to see they continue to go down. Get under three dollars," said Radovich. "I know I have one trip coming up in January so I hope that prices go down for that time."

Benton said prices should continue to fall until then.

"They should be going down until about the New Year is when we will see them to continue to decrease throughout the country," said Benton.

She didn't know how low the gas prices will go.

A year ago, Montana's statewide average was $3.60 a gallon, 13 cents above the national average that was $3.47 a gallon.
