Baton Rouge gas prices fell 4.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.19 per gallon, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 361 stations.
The cheapest Baton Rouge station is priced at $1.98 per gallon, while the most expensive station charges $2.69 per gallon.
The national average price of gasoline has risen 0.3 cents per gallon last week, now averaging $2.65 per gallon.
The national average is up 9.3 cents per gallon from last month but is 25.3 cents per gallon lower than last year.
“I believe we’re due for the national average to edge lower by perhaps five cents in the coming week as I believe increases should be limited due to oil’s drop in the last week fueled by continued worry over tariffs and trade…” Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, said.
GasBuddy is the only source for station-level data spanning nearly 20 years, and its survey updates 288 times daily from a list of sources covering nearly 150,000 stations nationwide.
