Average Tacoma gasoline prices continued their steady ascent this week rising 6.4 cents since last week, but prices still look reasonable compared with this week last year.

Prices then were $4.054 for a gallon of unleaded regular gas and rising rapidly. Those prices would peak in mid-July 2008 at more than $4.34 a gallon.

Fuel prices then fell below $2 a gallon in mid-December.

While reports the average price for unleaded is more than $2.60 a gallon in Tacoma today, gas is still available for as low as $2.41 a gallon at a Puyallup ARCO station and at Puyallup’s Costco.
