Arkansas gas prices still falling, but decline is slowing
Little Rock, Arkansas – After more than two months of significant decline, gas prices around Arkansas are showing signs of leveling off.
The statewide average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas is $3.39, which is five cents less than the average price Arkansas drivers were paying this time last week, according to AAA.
According to AAA spokesperson Nick Chabarria, some parts of Arkansas may see prices flatten or even tick up in the coming weeks.
“This week signals the end of consecutive declines at the pump statewide,” Chabarria said. “Drivers should expect late-summer gas prices to fluctuate given continued volatility in the global oil and gas markets.”
The national average price of a gallon of regular unleaded is down to $3.88, a drop of 5 cents compared to last week, AAA reported.
Arkansan drivers in Montgomery County are paying the most on average at $3.75, while drivers in Randolph County are paying the least at $3.21 per gallon.
Around central Arkansas, Little Rock and Hot Springs drivers are paying just under the state average with prices of $3.35 and $3.37 per gallon.
