Submitted

-

 Gas prices in West Central Kentucky are six cents lower this week at $2.186, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report.

 All Great Lakes and Central states have cheaper gas prices on the week, month and year except for Missouri and Kentucky, whose month-over-month difference is more expensive by three cents and a penny, respectively.

 On the week, gas prices are cheaper across the entire region by as much as 12 cents. Kentucky’s statewide average is six cents cheaper at $2.20.

 With a 1-million-barrel build, stock levels are up to 60 million barrels in the region, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). This increase helped to push gas prices cheaper on the week. Given the lower price of crude oil, prices are likely to push cheaper in the week ahead.

This week’s average prices:

Western Central KY Average $2.186.

Average price during the week of March 2, 2020 $2.243.

Average price during the week of March 11, 2019 $2.318.
