EUREKA - Don’t look now but gas prices are the lowest they’ve been in four years.
Energy officials say the change is due to slower demand and dramatic growth in production and supply here in the US and Canada. The average price has dropped a dollar since last May. The lowest price in a recent survey was Albuquerque, New Mexico at $2.38 a gallon. California still leads the lower 48 states with $3.04 a gallon.
Eureka is slightly below that price and experts say prices could drop even more before Christmas.
