Gas prices are down throughout Utah
The price of gasoline has risen nationally, but Utah has been immune. According to a press release from AAA Utah, the average price for a gallon of gas statewide is $2.26, down seven cents from last month and 32 cents from the same time last year. However, Utah's prices are still 22nd highest in the nation, where the average price for a gallon of gas is also $2.26. The release notes that concern over Hurricane Matthew causing spikes in the cost of gas have lessened, and Utah drivers should continue to see prices decrease as winter nears.
