Arkansas Gas Prices Still 10 Cents Off National Average

JULY 26, 2006 - Posted at 7:37 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansans can take small comfort in knowing that, while the average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline in Arkansas has jumped nearly ten cents in the last two weeks, it's still less than the national average.

The American Automobile Association says Arkansans are paying about $2.88 per gallon at the pump, compared to $2.18 per gallon during the same period last year.  the AAA says that, nationally, the average cost has climbed from $2.28 to $2.99 per gallon over the past year.

Some gas stations in Little Rock reached the $2.99 mark yesterday, tying the highest price recorded in Arkansas after Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast last August.

The AAA's Website says the highest average prices were in Magnolia and Texarkana, where the average price per gallon was $2.94 in both cities.  In Jonesboro, however, gasoline currently averages about $2.79 per gallon.
