Northwest Iowa — If you’ve been watching the pump prices lately you know that gasoline prices are continuing to slide, now averaging $1.82 per gallon statewide, with prices in Sheldon at $1.74. This is the lowest average we’ve seen in about seven years.
Gail Weinholzer, spokeswoman for Triple-A-Iowa, says the prices may keep falling for another four to six weeks.
She says consumers are used to the ups and downs.
The current statewide average of $1.82 is the lowest in Iowa since February of 2009. Iowa’s cheapest gas is now selling in Davenport at $1.71 while it’s most expensive in Des Moines at $1.88.
