Gas prices should fall
in time for the holidays
PORTLAND - Holiday travelers can look forward to falling prices at the gasoline pump, officials say.
The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Oregon fell 7 cents in November, better than the drop of 3 cents per gallon nationally.
But the statewide average price of $1.59 remains 18 cents higher than one year ago, according to the American Automobile Association.
Still, no increases are expected this month, said Elliott Eki, a spokesman for Oregon-Idaho AAA.
Oregon ranks ninth nationally for gasoline prices, while Hawaii tops the country with an average price of $2.07 per gallon. Oklahoma and Georgia have the lowest average price at $1.32.
