Nationally, prices are down substantially over the past month. The average is $3.62, down 6 cents from one week ago and 19 cents from one month ago.

Prices in Utah tend to move in the opposite way of national trends, sometimes in a completely unexplainable fashion. But they do often follow a cycle of generally being among the lowest in the country in winter months and among the highest during all or part of the summer.

As always, though, it pays to shop around because prices can vary widely, even among stations close to one another. A Smith’s Food & Drug gasoline station in Farmington, for example, was selling unleaded for $3.15 per gallon Thursday, according to gas-price comparison website UtahGasPrices.com.

Elsewhere along the Wasatch Front, most stations were charging more than $3.50 per gallon. In southern Utah, some stations were charging close to $4 per gallon, with some over that threshold, according to the site.
