Gasoline prices continue to fall in Vermont and are significantly lower than they were at this time a year ago.
The average retail gasoline price in Vermont dropped four cents over the past week to $3.54 a gallon. The national average price dropped about a penny-and-a-half to $3.37 a gallon.
Both in Vermont and across the country, prices have been falling steadily over the past two months. Prices typically drop sharply during the Fall months, but this year, the average is 40-cents lower than it was at this same time last year.
The government shutdown means less data is available on supply and demand for future traders to use, which the price tracking site GasBuddy says could add more volatility to the gasoline market.
