While gas prices decline, consumers still feel the pressure
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - In the last week, gas has gone down 6.9 cents per gallon to an average of $3.58 a gallon in South Dakota. Gas prices in South Dakota are 2.7 cents lower per gallon than a month ago but are still 23.3 cents higher per gallon than a year ago.

“For the third consecutive week, we’ve seen the national average price of gasoline decline, and while that is good news for most regions -- the northeast is seeing a jump due to tight supply,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for Gas Buddy.
Gas is still up over a dollar from 2020.
