ROCKFORD -- Gas prices in Rockford have risen 2.3 cents per gallon this week.
According to GasBuddy, a gasoline price website, the average yesterday was $3.72 per gallon. The national average has fallen 2.5 cents per gallon over last week to $3.64 per gallon.
The Rockford average price is 14.8 cents per gallon cheaper than last month and 31.2 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
"Average gasoline prices have continued to quietly move lower in the last week across much of the United States at a time of year when we historically are accustomed to seeing prices move higher," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "As of late last week, all fifty states saw lower gasoline prices than the same date last year, and the savings at the pump for motorists -- while not staggering -- amounts to millions of dollars a day."
