Baton Rouge gas prices fell 8.3 cents per gallon in the last week and now average $2.19 cents per gallon, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 361 gas stations.
The cheapest gas station in the city charges $1.99 per gallon, while the most expensive station charges $2.39 per gallon.
Baton Rouge remains one of the cities with the cheapest gas prices nationwide.
“With oil prices sagging lately, the door has been opened for a notable decline in U.S. gasoline prices, and that’s exact what has happened, with more declines likely coming ahead of us before the fun is over,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.
The cheapest price in the U.S. is just 10 cents lower than that of the cheapest Baton Rouge station, and the highest price in the nation is $5.74 per gallon.
Despite this, Baton Rouge prices are still 3.3 cents higher than last month’s prices and 26.3 cents higher than last year’s prices, GasBuddy determined.
