Could we see local gas prices drop below $4?

September 24th, 2012 by Rachel Pritchett

It’s within the realm of possibility. The average price for a gallon of unleaded Monday in Kitsap County was $4.01, less than a week ago, when it was $4.05.

We’ll see; I sincerely hope so.

Washington’s average price stood at $4.02 Monday, said auto club AAA. Our neighbor to the north, Alaska, has an average price of $4.01, which is unusual, since its price is typically much, much higher than ours. Idaho has the liquid gold commanding a sum of $3.86, and in Oregon, the price is $3.96.

Nationally, it was at $3.80.

    I was just in Belfair today and gas prices there are QFC 3.72, Safeway,3.79. So how can Mason County gas prices be lower than Kitsap?
