Despite adequate supplies and lower crude oil prices nationally, Utah has seen its average gasoline prices climb to ninth-highest in the nation. Early last week the average gasoline price sat at $2.45 per gallon after the state landed in the top 10 for weekly cost increases. Gas prices were up 9 cents in just one week and 18 cents in a month.
Compared to last year, Utah’s motorists are paying 63 cents more at the pump. Of the Utah cities surveyed in the AAA Fuel Gauge Report, all reported double-digit increases in the past month. Moab reported the highest average price of $2.61, while the lowest price, $2.43, was reported in Logan, Ogden and Provo.
