BISMARCK, N.D (STACKER) — Gas prices remain relatively unchanged nationwide this week compared with last as oil refining facilities come back online following severe winter weather in December.

A gallon of gas was $3.29 on average this week, according to AAA gas price data. Gas prices have remained well below historic peaks reached in June 2022.

New data from the federal government shows that falling gas prices have helped ease inflation pains for consumers, despite warnings prices could go higher in the coming weeks.

“It is likely that the national average prices we saw heading into Christmas may have been the lows for this winter,” AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross said in a statement.
