Decrease In Prices at The Pump Not Expected To Last Long

Gas prices in Kansas followed a national trend this week, continuing their decline of the past couple of weeks. The average gas price across Kansas is now $2.37/gallon, which is two cents less than one week ago. Motorists in the Sunflower State and across the country, however, should not expect falling prices to continue. AAA will announce its quarterly gas price report later this week, with indicators pointing upward.

Lower demand for gasoline over the second half of February has given us some relief at the pumps. Kansas still has the 13th lowest gas prices in the country, but it is looking like we may all need to prepare to pay more soon.

At $2.52, the national gas price average is the cheapest pump price seen this February. The national gas price average for the month of February is $2.56, which is 29-cents more expensive than the $2.28 average of February 2017. On the week, gas prices decreased 1 cent.
