That price is 11th lowest in the country, as the national average price is $2.37. "The increased price of oil has put pressure on gasoline prices in Utah and other Rocky Mountain states, although the increases have been minimal compared with other areas in the country," said Rolayne Fairclough, AAA Utah spokesperson, in the release.
