Gas Prices Move Upward at the End of 2019
Gas prices are ticking up at the end of 2019, but they aren't expected to stay that way.
The average price for a gallon of gas in South Dakota is $2.48. That is the same as a week ago, and a penny more than a month ago. One year ago the average price of gas was only $2.22.
“The majority of states saw gas prices increase in the last week – some by as much as a nickel to a dime, but any spikes in gas prices that motorists are seeing will be short-lived,” said Marilyn Buskohl, AAA spokesperson. “AAA expects gas prices to decrease following the holidays.”
As of this writing, the average price for a gallon of gas in Sioux Falls is $2.40 per gallon according to GasBuddy.com. That is just a penny higher than two weeks ago. The cheapest gas in Sioux Falls is at Cenex on North Cliff, Costco, and Sam's Club at $2.24 per gallon.
