Des Moines, Iowa – RadioIowa – Gas prices continue to remain steady across the state of Iowa. Department of Agriculture fuels analyst Harold Hommes says there’s not been a lot happening to cause a change.
Gas prices are averaging 25 cents less a gallon compared to last year at this time, and diesel fuel is down around nine cents.
The E-15 blended fuel is again being sold in some locations in the state and that is also part of the mix when it comes to gas pricing.
Hommes says you shouldn’t see much change at the pumps for now.
The last survey of regular unleaded gasoline showed a statewide average of $2.20 a gallon in Iowa. Diesel fuel prices in Iowa were up two cents from last week with a statewide average of $2.44. One year ago diesel prices averaged $2.53 in Iowa.
