Salt Lake City—Gas prices continued to fall in Utah this month, even as national prices crept higher.
Moab drivers paid an average of $2.72 for a gallon of unleaded, the highest prices in the state, according to AAA surveys of local stations.
The average price of a gallon of gas dropped a few cents in Salt Lake City ($2.46) and Provo ($2.47) this month.
The national average price for gasoline was $2.26, an increase of 3 cents from last week. The price of crude remains below $50 a barrel.
“Gas prices are still the cheapest they’ve been all year, but that could change,” said AAA Utah spokesman Mike Blasky. “Prices increased in 31 states this month, so drivers should take advantage of low prices while they can.”
