Less demand driving gas prices down, AAA says
LONDON, Ky. (WKYT) - Chances are you have noticed less pain at the pump lately.
Gas prices are falling, and you might be paying less than $3 a gallon in some places.
In London, Ky., just off Interstate 75, gas is between $2.87 to $2.91 a gallon Friday afternoon. Diesel is still almost $5 a gallon. Nationwide, prices are just over $3 a gallon, a much different situation than it was last summer.
AAA Bluegrass says less demand for oil is driving prices down. They say it’s primarily because of global issues such as COVID-19-related lockdowns in China keeping people from driving there.
According to Gas Buddy, the cheapest gas is found in western Kentucky, around $2.39 a gallon, to well over $3 a gallon in the Louisville area.
AAA Bluegrass expects prices to stay lower into the new year.
