 Drivers in all states and the District of Columbia continue to pay more than $3 per gallon at the pump; but only one state, Hawaii, still has an average price at or above $4 a gallon, down from two states last week.  Hawaii has the most expensive gas in the country for the fourth week in a row. 

For the second week in a row, both Oregon and Washington remain out of the 10 most expensive states, but California and Idaho remain.  Hawaii is most expensive at $4.19, followed by New York at $3.99, Alaska at $3.99, Connecticut at $3.86 and California at $3.85 (down 11 cents and down from fourth most expensive last week).

 Idaho is eighth down from sixth at $3.70 (down seven cents).  Oregon is 15th down from 11th last week at $3.60 (down 11 cents).  Washington is 16th down from 13th most expensive at $3.58 (down 9 cents).  For the third week in a row, Missouri has the cheapest gas in the nation at $3.10 a gallon (down a penny).

 Diesel prices are also declining in most markets.  The national average loses two-and-a-half cents to $4.00 while Oregon’s average drops a penny to $4.11.

Diesel is at or above $4 a gallon in 31 states (including the District of Columbia), down from 36 last week.  Hawaii is most expensive at $4.95, followed by New York at $4.38, Alaska at $4.38, Connecticut at $4.34 and California at $4.25 (down four cents and fifth for the third consecutive week). Idaho is eighth down from sixth last week at $4.18 (down seven cents).  Washington is sixth up from eighth last week at $4.20 (up a penny). Oregon is 16th up from 19th last week.  A year ago, the national average for diesel was $3.95 and Oregon's was $4.08.
