The national average has fallen 6 cents in the last week to $2.47 per gallon. That’s 19.3 cents lower than a month ago and 21.4 cents higher than a year ago.

Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy, says nationally, prices still stand about 15 cents per gallon higher than pre-Hurricane Harvey, but they’re likely to continue on a downward trajectory.
