Gas Prices Could Be on the Decline Soon
With fall in full swing, and winter-like weather on the horizon, gas prices in Montana could soon be on the decline.
AAA Mountain West spokesperson Kaelyn Kelly says gas prices tend to drop after Labor Day weekend. She says based on past trends, the cost to fill up a tank will lower as cooler weather moves in. This is because demand is decreasing, as fewer people are looking to travel at this time of year.
Prices start to dip down through the fall, getting even lower into winter and the beginning of the following year. And they generally start to creep up again as we get closer to spring."
Kelly says Montana is currently experiencing some of the highest gas prices in the nation, which is partly due to refinery maintenance and unexpected refinery closures in California.
