DAYTON — Average retail gasoline prices in Dayton have fallen 11.0 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.13 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 391 gas outlets in Dayton.
This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.24 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.
Including the change in gas prices in Dayton during the past week, prices on Sunday were 14.7 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 3.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has decreased 5.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.3 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.
"As expected, gasoline prices over the last week were mixed,” said Patrick DeHaan, a GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst. “While the national average edged lower by a couple cents nearing its lowest of the summer, 20 states saw average prices move higher, two states saw prices little changed, while 28 saw average prices decline."
The average price for a gallon of gas in Dayton Monday morning is $2.14, with prices stable, according to GasBuddy.com. The cheapest gas Monday morning is $2.07 at Marathon on Riverside Drive.
In Hamilton, the average price for a gallon of gas is $2.18, with prices stable. The cheapest gas is $2.05 at Five Points Markets on Grand Boulevard.
In Springfield, the average price for a gallon of gas is $2.13, with prices stable. The cheapest gas is $2.07 at BP on E. Main Street.
"Oil prices, after sagging to close the month of June, had started July by surging, only to let up shortly after,” DeHaan said. “Last week, however, the market resumed the rise, posting a 5 percent weekly gain, so we're likely again to see something of everything: gas prices rising in most areas, falling in a few, and perhaps changing little in a handful of places as well. The bigger issue we're now looking at that could affect gasoline prices are a last minute special meeting OPEC will be holding on July 27. It remains a bit of a mystery what, if anything, they may decide, but all eyes will be focused on any policy changes or production changes."
