Gas prices continue to drop in KOTA Territory


Despite higher gas prices across the country, the cost to fill up your tank in KOTA Territory continues to drop.

According to, the national average for unleaded is sitting at $3.50 a gallon.

The average for South Dakota: $3.45.

But here in KOTA Territory we are paying even lower than that; with some gas stations in Rapid City charging only 3 dollars a gallon for unleaded.

Stations posted a slight price drop earlier this week and some dropped a dime or more this morning.

Drivers welcome the cheaper prices, especially as they normally skyrocket during tourism season.

"I'm loving it, it's not stressful. It's nice to not have to spend so much on a tank of gas like normal. I hope it stays this way; I hope the gas prices don't skyrocket like they did last year," said Katy Alsson, who lives in Black Hawk.

"No matter where you are, at any gas station the price is going to fluctuate. So I think I won't worry about it too much; I'll fill up when I need to, and hopefully I can afford it at the time," said Andrew McClanahan, lives in Rapid City.

At this time last year, prices were around $3.71 a gallon.
