It may be time to head to the pumps for Moose Jaw residents, as the price of gasoline has dropped yet again at several stations around the city.
On Tuesday, the price of fuel in Moose Jaw fell eight cents down to 149.9 cents per litre. This new price is inching closer to the lowest average price seen this year in Moose Jaw at 134.9 cents per litre, according to data going back as far as 2008.
According to GasBuddy, as of Wednesday morning, seven service stations within the city are reporting the new lowered price.
Other service stations are reporting a price between 156.9 to 175.9 cents per litre.
Tuesday’s new price is a reflection of GasBuddy Petroleum Analyst, Patrick DeHaan’s prediction of lowered prices. His prediction was based on the gasoline supply exceeding demand, which has driven the price down. Another reason for his prediction was the decline in wholesale gas prices in recent weeks.
This is the second price drop in a week, as prices dropped on Nov. 15 down nine cents to 157.9 down from 166.9.
As of Wednesday morning, the average price of fuel in Moose Jaw is 156.9 cents per litre, which is just above the 152.9 provincial average.
