Gasoline cheaper in North Dakota this Fourth of July holiday

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Gasoline is noticeably cheaper in North Dakota than it was last year heading into the Fourth of July holiday.

The latest weekly report from GasBuddy.com shows an average retail price in North Dakota of about $2.25 a gallon. That’s lower than the national average of $2.31 a gallon.

The average price also is nearly 50 cents per gallon cheaper than a year ago in North Dakota.

Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski says the impact of Britain leaving the European Union is expected to add even more downward pressure to summer gas prices, despite record-setting demand.
