Gasoline prices in Utah take a dip
The average price for a gallon of gasoline dropped five cents from last month to $2.49, though that figure remains well above the national average of $2.26. According to a press release from AAA Utah, prices have fallen slightly for consecutive months, but could rise again, along with much of the country. "Gas prices are still the cheapest they’ve been all year, but that could change," said AAA Utah spokesman Mike Blasky in the release. “Prices increased in 31 states this month, so drivers should take advantage of low prices while they can."
