Gas prices dropped in Arkansas, average gas prices in Pine Bluff at $2.892

Pine Bluff, Arkansas – Arkansas drivers have recently noticed a small but welcome change. According to GasBuddy.com, the average price of gasoline in the state has seen a decrease. Over the past week, prices at the pump have dropped by 3.1 cents, bringing the average to $2.86 per gallon. However, prices are still 19.5 cents higher than they were just a month ago, but when compared to this time last year, Arkansans are paying 12.3 cents less per gallon.

Nationally, the trend is similar, with the average price for a gallon of gasoline falling by 1.9 cents to $3.24.

Despite this momentary relief, experts caution that it may be short-lived. Patrick De Haan, the head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, shared his insights, stating, “It’s likely only a matter of time before we see the rise re-engage and prices start to head higher. But we’ll take any break that we can.” De Haan points out that the recent drop in oil prices to around $76 a barrel and refineries operating at about 80 percent capacity are contributing factors to the current decrease. Yet, he warns, “That’s why it’s just a matter of time before prices collide with rising demand and start to accelerate again.”

The current average price in Pine Bluff, as per the American Automobile Association, stands at $2.892. As we navigate through these changes, it’s important to stay informed about the latest gas prices, whether through resources like GasBuddy or AAA.

Keeping an eye on the latest prices can help motorists make more informed decisions about when and where to fill up their tanks. While the present dip offers some relief, the advice from experts like De Haan suggests that drivers should be prepared for prices to potentially climb again.
