PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) A travel organization says Tuesday’s national average price for regular gasoline was at $3.51 per gallon, which is a nickel lower than the price one week ago and 35 cents cheaper than one year ago. AAA South Dakota says in a press release that the average price of self-serve gasoline in the state rose Tuesday to $3.65, which is a nickel below the price of a week ago, and about .20 cents less than a year ago. In the past seven days, prices in five Midwestern states have fallen by at least a dime per gallon. Among South Dakota’s neighbors Tuesday, four states have lower statewide price averages; Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Wyoming. North Dakota’s average mirrors South Dakota’s and Montana’s is three cents higher at $3.68. AAA says the lower prices are due to ample supplies, continued weak demand and the start of the transition to production of cheaper, winter blend gasoline.
