For the last ten weeks, drivers across the U.S. have enjoyed a steady decline in fuel costs. This trend is primarily due to low levels of demand, which have limited pump prices despite fluctuating crude oil prices and OPEC+ production cuts. As of December 1, the national average for gas stands at $3.25 per gallon, which is 21 cents cheaper than last month.

Here in Pennsylvania, the price of gas per gallon has descended to $3.57, marking a 12-cent drop from last month and a 36-cent reduction over the past year.

Metropolitan areas across the state’s central region have continued to experience low fuel costs, as well. Here’s a full breakdown:

Altoona: $3.55, down nineteen cents since last month
