WEEKEND GAS WATCH
CLOVIS (KSMX)- The statewide gas price average in New Mexico is $2.51 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel, according to the AAA New Mexico Weekend Gas Watch. That price is three cents more compared to this day last week and 25 cents less per gallon than this day last year.
The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.57 which is the same price when compared to this day last week and 27 cents less than the price per gallon on this day last year. While prices in many states are dropping, some states, including New Mexico, are seeing slight increases at the pump due to fluctuation in gasoline stocks.
Demand for retail gasoline is beginning to lower across the region with the end of summer driving season, however exports to areas outside of the U.S. are causing supplies to be at their lowest point for this time of year since 2015.
