Good news my fellow commuters. Gas prices have gone down by 5 cents a gallon the last month. Here are todays prices along the Key Peninsula Highway: Home Shell station, $3.85 a gallon; 134th Street Shell, $3.79 a gallon; Wauna 76 station, $3.75 a gallon; Wauna Chevron, $3.75 a gallon.
In Tacoma, last week’s average price of a gallon of unleaded gasoline was $3.79. The national average per gallon was $3.65. A month ago in Tacoma it was $3.85 a gallon and the national average was $3.72.
If you went back a year, prices have definitely slid. Tacoma’s average price per gallon a year ago today was $4.12 and the national average was $3.89.
