In Springfield, the average price for a gallon of gas also is $1.94, but trending down. The cheapest gas is $1.74 at Speedway on Derr Road.
“The cheapest gas prices of the year are now solidly behind us as the national average will soon again hit $2,” Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy, said in a release. “The current upward trend is an unfortunate one that we witness every year, but the sudden jolt this time around has been enhanced by a 45 percent jump in the price of crude oil in the last month. … Motorists still could see the cheapest average summer gasoline prices in over a decade.”
