A gasoline pricing website says the average price of a regular gallon of gasoline in Chico has dropped another 2 cents over the last week to $3.54, a decline of 17.7 cents in the last month.
Including the change in gas prices in Chico during the past week, prices yesterday were 30.9 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago. The national average has decreased 8.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 8.6 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
"Hard to believe, but in a week that saw U.S. airstrikes on Iraq targeting ISIS terrorism, the resulting 'spike' in crude oil prices was barely a ripple," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski.
