GasBuddy: South Bend gas price average drops 23.4 cents after last week’s jump
SOUTH BEND Average retail gas prices in South Bend fell 23.4 cents per gallon in the past week according to a release from GasBuddy, a website that tracks national gas prices.
The average price Sunday, June 16, was $3.98 a gallon according to a GasBuddy daily survey of 210 South Bend gas outlets. The drop comes after prices rose to $4.22 a gallon June 9.
The national average fell 2.1 cents per gallon last week to $3.61 a gallon, according to GasBuddy.
“The national average has continued its downward decline in the last week, likely being helped by relief in the Great Lakes, a region that had been plagued with refining issues that have seemingly been resolved,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.
