  • Arkansas, June 4- Average retail gasoline prices in Arkansas have fallen 4.7
    cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.25/g yesterday. This
    compares with the national average that has fallen 4.5 cents per gallon in
    the last week to $3.61/g, according to gasoline price website
    ArkansasGasPrices.com.
    Including the change in gas prices in Arkansas during the past week, prices
    yesterday were 30.3 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 18.2 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 16.2
    cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
    "An impressive decline in average gasoline prices will now be extended as
    the West Coast begins to see lower prices in the days ahead," said
    GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "With significant
    downward pressure on oil prices last week, motorists will continue to see
    prices sliding east of the Rockies, and even the West Coast will start to
    get in on the action, thanks to a supply situation that appears to be
    turning around. Also pushing down oil prices last week was a frightening
    jobs report, as well as continued concerns about European debt problems,"
    DeHaan said.
