South Dakota Weekly Gas Price Update

South Dakota gas prices see decrease over past week

News Staff - October 28, 2018

UNDATED - Gasoline prices in South Dakota have fallen 2.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.83/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 628 stations in South Dakota. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.9 cents per gallon versus last week to $2.81/g, according to GasBuddy.

Average gasoline prices on October 29 in South Dakota have ranged widely over the last five years:
$2.48/g in 2017, $2.20/g in 2016, $2.29/g in 2015, $3.12/g in 2014 and $3.22/g in 2013.

Including the change locally during the past week, prices yesterday were 35.7 cents per gallon higher than a year ago and are 4.6 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has dropped 6.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 35.6 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

Areas near South Dakota and their current gas price climate:
Sioux Falls- $2.74/g, down 5.9 cents per gallon from last week's $2.80/g.
North Dakota- $2.82/g, down 4.5 cents per gallon from last week's $2.87/g.
Nebraska- $2.76/g, down 7.7 cents per gallon from last week's $2.84/g.

"From coast to coast, gas prices in nearly every state saw downward movement in the last week as sliding oil prices continued to keep the door open to falling gas prices. In fact, in the next 24 hours we'll likely see the national average fall to its lowest point in over six months," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "Saudi Arabia has indicated it is prepared to raise oil production, addressing what had been a major concern ahead of Iran sanctions taking effect. Oil prices have fallen over 10 percent in recent weeks, providing the bulk of the gas price relief we're seeing, and will continue to see for the next week or two at least. While there is still some anxiety globally over a lack of spare oil capacity, the market has been laser focused on discussion from oil producers, including Russia, that they will act to raise production. OPEC meets in early December, and any official increase in oil production could go a long way to temper concerns of shortcomings in the market."
