Modesto gas prices have fallen 7.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.82/gallon as of June 10, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 201 stations. Gas prices in Modesto are 13.0 cents per gallon lower than a month ago, yet stand 26.6 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Modesto is priced at $3.55/gallon while the most expensive is $4.29, a difference of 74.0 cents per gallon. The lowest price in the state as of June 10 was $2.89/gallon while the highest was $5.19, a difference of $2.30/gallon. The cheapest price in the entire country on Monday was $1.97/gallon while the most expensive was $5.19, a difference of $3.22/gallon.

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 7.1 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.73/gallon. The national average is down 12.9 cents per gallon from a month ago, and stands 17.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

Neighboring areas and their current gas prices include: Stockton - $3.79/gallon, down 7.1 cents per gallon from last week’s $3.86; Oakland - $3.92, down 6.7 cents from last week’s $3.99; and San Jose - $3.90/gallon, down 5.9 cents from last week’s $3.96/gallon.

“Last week saw a feat most motorists probably thought they’d never see in June – average gasoline prices declined in nearly every state across the country with the national average now at its lowest point since early April,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “With gasoline inventories also growing in most areas of the country, the transition to summer gasoline complete, motorists will continue to see prices moving lower as the summer driving season gets underway. We’re likely to see more good news at the pump than bad for the foreseeable future.”
