Northwest Iowa — Over the past several weeks we’ve seen the pump prices of gasoline drop here in our area, and similar decreases have been seen nationwide.

Triple-A Iowa reports that the average price for a gallon of gas nationwide is now at a record low of $2.43 a gallon. The average in Iowa dropped 13-cents compared to last week to hit $2.16 a gallon. That’s 30 cents a gallon lower than last year at this time. Triple-A spokesman Nick Jarmusz says everything has fallen into place to push prices lower.

Jarmusz says you won’t pay the average price at all stations — as the cost to fill up can vary quite a bit across the state. Here in Sheldon, as of Friday mid-day, the pump prices are within a cent or two of $2.15 a gallon.

He says the prices should stay low for awhile — but there is one unknown still out there.

Jarmusz says it is likely the prices will stay right around where they are, at least through December.
