Gas prices felt like they are little up and down lately and that is exactly how it is when you look at the numbers.

The average price of a gallon of gas in South Dakota sits at $2.51 according to AAA. That is up a penny from a week ago and down 6 cents from a month ago. One year ago we were paying $2.80 per gallon.

“Gas prices continue to fluctuate across the country, though on the week the majority of states saw prices only increase or decrease by one or two cents,” said Marilyn Buskohl, AAA spokesperson. “The largest volatility at the pump continues to be seen in the West Coast & Rockies states along with a handful of states in the Great Lakes and Central region.”

The average price of gas in Sioux Falls is sitting at $2.45 per gallon according to GasBuddy.com. The cheapest price in town is $2.31 at Costco and Sam's.
