Average retail gas prices in Bakersfield fell 2.2 cents per gallon in the past week.

The national average for one gallon of regular unleaded is $2.25-that's a penny less than a week ago, but three 3 cents more than this time past year, a news release said. "While the national average edged lower by a couple cents nearing its lowest of the summer, 20 states saw average prices move higher, two states saw prices little changed, while 28 saw average prices decline", said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com.

The New York State average is $2.41 per gallon, also down a penny from last week.

July has been a steady month at the gasoline pump in Florida as prices for a gallon of gas remain stable. Prices are the statewide average for a gallon of regular gasoline. This is three cents cheaper than last week's average.

Orange County- $2.86/g, down 2.7 cents per gallon from last week's $2.89/g. The most costly gallon of gas in the state was recorded in West Palm Beach where the fuel was averaging $2.24 per gallon, AAA officials said. "Last week, however, the market resumed the rise, posting a 5 percent weekly gain, so we're likely again to see something of everything: gas prices rising in most areas, falling in a few and perhaps changing little in a handful of places as well".

$2.02/g in 2016, $2.54/g in 2015, $3.44/g in 2014, $3.52/g in 2013 and $3.25/g in 2012.
