Arkansas gas prices averaging $3.89 per gallon



Little Rock, Arkansas – Arkansans are beginning the new week by filling up their gas tanks.

The average fuel price on Monday morning in the Natural State is currently at $3.89 per gallon for Regular, up 20 cents compared to one week ago, according to the latest data from the AAA Gas Price Monitor.

With prices currently averaging $4.82 per gallon, drivers who fill up with diesel fuel are having a much harder time.

The county with the cheapest gas currently is Greene County, with prices sitting at $3.72 per gallon.

The most expensive gas prices in Arkansas are currently found in the southern part of the state, with Bradley County holding the high mark at $4.19 per gallon.

Currently, in central Arkansas, the average for drivers in Little Rock and Hot Springs is $3.90 per gallon and $3.91 in Pine Bluff.

The average gas price across the country is $4.33 a gallon, with California currently the highest at $5.74 and Kansas the lowest at $3.82.

With the price of crude oil now below $110 a barrel, there is a glimmer of hope that the sharp increase might ease back, but it’s still very unpredictable, according to AAA.

“It bears reminding that the cost of oil accounts for about 50% of what drivers pay at the pump,” Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson says. “This war is roiling an already tight global oil market and making it hard to determine if we are near a peak for pump prices, or if they keep grinding higher. It all depends on the direction of oil prices.”
