Gas prices continue to dance around for the most part in Kansas reports AAA.  As of March 13, Kansas gas prices are up and down with a few spots seeing larger increase.  Lawrence jumped nine cents on the week to $2.24. The average in Kansas a year ago was $1.93 and $2.34 on this date in 2015.

The High/Low around the state: Deerfield-$2.50/Goddard-$2.03

Leavenworth is the second lowest in the state with an average per gallon of $2.07.

After remaining relatively flat, the national average price for regular unleaded gasoline has now fallen for 10 straight days to today’s average of $2.30 per gallon. Today’s national average is one cent less than one week ago and two cents more than one month ago. Compared to this same date last year, consumers are paying 37 cents more per gallon at the pump.

Gas prices may continue to drop in the near future due to declining crude oil prices and a well-supplied market, but will begin to creep up again over the next month due to seasonal refinery maintenance and the May 1 required switchover for producing summer-blend gasoline.  This prediction comes with the necessary caveat that an unexpected market-moving event, such as unplanned domestic refinery maintenance or further production cuts from OPEC and non-OPEC countries, could further impact prices and supply.

Motorists can find current gas prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android. The app can also be used to map a route, find discounts, book a hotel and access AAA roadside assistance. Learn more at AAA.com/mobile.
