  • Arkansas, May 29- Average retail gasoline prices in Arkansas have fallen 4.9
    cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.30/g yesterday. This
    compares with the national average that has fallen 3.6 cents per gallon in
    the last week to $3.65/g, according to gasoline price website
    ArkansasGasPrices.com.
    Including the change in gas prices in Arkansas during the past week, prices
    yesterday were 31.2 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago
    and are 29.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average
    has decreased 15.7 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 13.4
    cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
    "Summer driving season has officially begun with the national average
    falling far lower than we expected it earlier this year," said GasBuddy.com
    Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "The national average has dropped
    to a surprising $3.65/gal mark as of today. Had you asked me back in January
    if the national average would have been that low on Memorial Day, I would
    likely have chuckled, but it goes to show anything is possible," DeHaan
    said. GasBuddy forecast back in January that the national average would peak
    between $3.75-$4.15/gal. The national average peaked at $3.92/gal on April
    5, far sooner than many analysts, including DeHaan, expected it to occur.
