Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:
Sioux Falls- $2.81/g, unchanged from last week’s $2.81/g.
North Dakota- $2.82/g, down 0.4 cents per gallon from last week’s $2.82/g.
Nebraska- $2.85/g, down 7.6 cents per gallon from last week’s $2.92/g.

“After a brief hiatus, the national average has moved off its recent high, again falling closer to the $3 per gallon mark, setting up a potential second attempt at slipping below $2.99 for the first time since 2021,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “While gas prices have risen in some areas, such as California after refinery snags emerged, other states have returned to declines. Illinois is one such example, falling below $3 per gallon for the first time since 2021. The Great Lakes and Gulf Coast offer some of the nation’s lowest gas prices, with the window of opportunity holding for the next few weeks to potentially re-test some of the levels seen a few weeks ago. The good news continues for average diesel prices, which slipped below $4 per gallon again and stand at their lowest level since the summer.”
