The average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States rose today for the 38th day in a row, to $3.90, or 2 cents more overnight.
Prices are below the national average in 18 states, including New Mexico, where a driver can expect to pay $3.79 a gallon, CNNMoney reports. Gas is cheapest in Wyoming, at $3.59 a gallon.
In the Albuquerque metro area, gas prices were $3.72 this week, up from $3.67, according to AAA New Mexico.
In a season of rapidly increasing gas prices, it is refreshing to see that Albuquerque drivers are able to pay less than the surround states for a gallon of gas. As an Albuquerque Realtor, gas prices are critical to my business. It would take much higher gas prices to put me out of business – MUCH HIGHER – but it sure is nice when I can fill up my tank for less than $60.00.
