Arkansas Gas Prices Continue to Tumble

OCTOBER 11, 2006 - Posted at 3:56 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Gasoline prices in Arkansas are continuing to fall.  Average prices are more than ten cents lower that two weeks ago, a trend that mirrors the price of gas naturally.

The average price per gallon of self-serve unleaded gasoline in Arkansas is $2.12 today.  That's a drop of eleven cents in the last two weeks and 40 cents in the last month.  That's according to the AAA, the organization formerly the American Automobile Association.

In Arkansas' metro areas, the cheapest gas appears to be in Jonesboro, where prices are as low as $1.97 at some stations.  Prices at most Jonesboro stations range from $1.97 to $1.99 per gallon today.  Gas prices in Fort Smith today are reported to be $2.05, and are as high as $2.14 per gallon in Pine Bluff.

Nationwide, gas prices have also dropped nearly 15 cents in the last two weeks.  Gas prices peaked August 11 at $3.02 per gallon.
