Jonesboro Gas Prices Take Significant Hike

OCTOBER 25, 2006 - Posted at 7:23 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Average gasoline prices in Arkansas were holding steady at just above $2 per gallon of unleaded fuel yesterday, halting a trend that saw prices fall nearly 40 cents in one month.  But, in Jonesboro, gas prices jumped eight to ten cents at most stations in the past 24 hours.  The average price at most Jonesboro stations this morning is $2.02(9), up from $1.92(9) to $1.94(9) at most stations.

In Arkansas, the average price per gallon of self-serve unleaded gasoline was $2.07 yesterday, a drop of five cents in the last two weeks and 20 cents in the last month, the Web site for the AAA, formerly the American Automobile Association, showed.

In Arkansas' metro areas, the cheapest gas remains in Jonesboro, with Fort Smith next in line at $2.04, and the most expensive in Pine Bluff at $2.10.  Texarkana had gas for $2.05 while Fayetteville and Little Rock hit the state average of $2.07.

The Web site www.arkansasgasprices.com, however, showed several gas stations in central and western Arkansas selling unleaded gasoline for less than $2 per gallon.  The lowest reported price was $1.84 in Sheridan.

Nationwide, gas prices have also dropped nearly 20 cents in the last two weeks.  The average price for a gallon of unleaded as of Tuesday was $2.20 nationally, compared to $2.39 a month ago.
