Finally, a splash of good news for cash-strapped eastside drivers: Gas prices are on the decline in Washington state.
Bad news is, the national average is $3.53, so Washington state drivers are paying — on average — 54-cents more per gallon than drivers across the country.
There’s no telling if the prices at the pump will continue on this welcome decline, but let’s hope so.
Seattle-area gas prices have dropped from an average of $4.33 a gallon this time last month to $4 earlier this week. That’s a 33-cent difference.
According to our handy gas price finder (click on the “commute” button near the top of the Mercer Island Patch homepage) prices range from $4.05 - $4.11.
