After long descent from May’s over $4 prices, Tacoma’s retail gas prices appear to have hit the bottom for the year and have stabilized there.
According to TacomaGasPrices.com, the average price for a gallon of regular today was $3.387 a gallon, just .1 cent greater than on Friday last week. A month ago, gas was averaging $3.525 a gallon locally.
Two Costco stores and two Arco stations were selling gas for $3.25 a gallon or less today making them the lowest price stations in the Tacoma area.
Nationwide, the average price for gas was $3.258 a gallon. Washington prices are generally higher because of higher gas taxes and a more limited number of competitors in this area.
