PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - After falling 1 cent per gallon in the past week, Peoria gas prices are averaging $3.43/g.

According to GasBuddy, prices in Peoria are 2.8 cents a gallon lower than a month ago and 91.6 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

The cheapest station in Peoria is $3.11 per gallon and most expensive is $3.69 per gallon.

The lowest price in the state today is $2.79/g while the highest is $4.39/g, a difference of $1.60/g.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 1.3 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.31/g today.

The national average is the same as one month ago and stands 93.3 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:

-Quad Cities: $3.19/g, up 6.4 cents per gallon from last week’s $3.13/g

-Champaign: $3.40/g, down 1 cent per gallon from last week’s $3.41/g

-Illinois: $3.41/g, down 2.8 cents per gallon from last week’s $3.44/g

“Average gas prices saw a slight boost over the last week as the rising price of crude oil continues to push prices up. While the rise was fairly tame, some states still saw slight declines. Gasoline demand, aside from motorists filling up ahead of the weekend winter storm, has been lackluster. The real pain at the pump will start in about 4-6 weeks,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “Oil prices continue to edge higher as oil production remains a concern due to unrest in Libya and Kazakhstan, however, some improvement in the latter situation could lead to oil prices being more subdued.”
