Snow has not been falling in the metro but gas prices have been.
The Quick Trip off Ingersoll in Des Moines had gas prices as low as $2.99 per gallon on Sunday night. This is the first time gas prices have fallen below the $3 mark this year.
The Des Moines average for gas prices is $3.19 according to GasBuddy.com; a number that’s nearly 10-cents lower than it was one week ago.
The downward trend in gas prices is going against the national trend where gas prices are on the rise. The U.S. average is $3.29 currently.
