Gas Prices Fall Lower Than June 2011

Gas Prices Fall Lower Than June 2011

As drivers steer into the official start of the summer driving season this week, there's good news at the pump.

While drivers are paying less at the pump when compared to previous years, the drop isn't enough to make some people happy.

While preparing for a four hour drive to Fargo, Kimberly Clark fills up her SUV before hitting the road.

"It used to cost me around $85 and now it costs me somewhere in the lower $70s. It's fantastic; it helps out a lot," Clark said.

According to AAA, South Dakota gas prices are down 22 cents a gallon compared to this time last year. That's a sharp contrast over speculation pointing to prices as high as five dollars a gallon this summer.

"It's been a pleasant surprise for us," AAA Spokesperson Marilyn Buskohl said.

Buskohl says the slide is largely the result of global economic news and declining crude oil prices, which have fallen $20 a barrel since May.

"We expect gas prices to stay low through the summer months," Buskohl said.

But with the current average in South Dakota over $3.50 a gallon, some drivers say it's still too expensive.

"If the gas prices were to go even lower, it would be so much better. I know everybody that travels and it is affecting them," Shawn Ewing said while traveling to Rapid City.

Across the country, gas prices have gone down nearly 40 cents a gallon since April.
