Average U.S. gas prices are at their lowest point since Hurricane Harvey hit 110 days ago and caused prices to rise, according to Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. Gas prices have decreased 28.9 cents from last month's average and have decreased by 10 cents from last year's average. The state average is falling at a rate of 1 cent per day and prices for the year-end holidays should be on par with, if not lower than past year, AAA said.

In the Miami area, gas fell 2.3 cents in the past week and is averaging $2.46 a gallon, according to industry group GasBuddy.com.

The cost of gas has now declined for five straight weeks, AAA said, as refineries are producing more than drivers are buying.

Las Vegas- $2.61/g, down 2.4 cents per gallon from last week's $2.63/g.


AAA expects gasoline demand to weaken throughout the winter, which translates to better prices at the pump. The Florida average is falling at a rate of a penny per day.

The latest Triple-A Fuel Survey puts North Dakota's average at $2.46 a gallon.

August 30 was after Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Gulf Coast of Texas, flooding much of the state and shutting down refineries that supply gas to much of the nation. In Pasco County this week, motorists were paying around $2.27 for unleaded.

In Broward County, gas under $2.30 could be found along Federal Highway between Hillsboro Boulevard in Deerfield Beach and Atlantic Avenue in Pompano Beach, as well as along Sample Road, Commercial Boulevard, State Road 7, Broward Boulevard and Davie Boulevard.
