Gas prices drop for first time this year

Last week, a report from AAA said that the national average price for gasoline dropped for the first time in 2018. According to a press release, while it is common for gas prices to decrease in January and February following the holiday season, this year prices around the country remained high during these months. Throughout 2017, crude oil prices remained around $50 a barrel, but prices jumped to $70 a barrel in early January as Saudi Arabia cut oil production. Utah's average price per gallon is $2.51, and the release said that throughout the year, the cost will likely increase another 10 to 15 cents.
