The good news is that gas prices seem to have stabilized over the last few weeks in the South Sound.
The bad news is that they’re stable at more than $4 a gallon.
Prices from The News Tribune’s Gas Deal Finder show average prices for unleaded regular in the Tacoma area Friday were $4.049 a gallon. That within a cent of where that same prices were a week ago.
Bargain hunters can still find sub-$4 gas at several Arco, Chevron and Costco stations where were selling gas for more than 10 cents a gallon less than the average.
One report puts the lowest price for gas at $3.75 a gallon at an APP station in Fife. That price is so much lower than the norm, it may be erroneous.
National prices are about 28 cents less a gallon on average.
Lowest gas prices in the Olympia area were reported to be $3.88 a gallon at the U.S. Gas station at 10222 Martin Way E.
