Len Anderson, KSKA – Anchorage
Last week Anchorage retail gasoline prices rose four and half cents. Yesterday regular unleaded average $4.12 cents. That’s 23 cents higher for regular than one month ago and up 73 cents from the same day last year.
The cost for diesel in Anchorage ranged from 4.23 to $4.49 a gallon.
Also according to the nation-wide price tracking group GasBuddy-dot-com, Fairbanks’ average price for regular yesterday was $4.13. Juneau was $4.01 cents a gallon.
The national average was $3.80 a gallon, 94 cents higher than a year ago.
And, of course, prices are higher in Alaska’s bush communities.
