Demand Is Down, So Are Gasoline Prices In Iowa

Northwest Iowa — While there’s still much volatility in the market due to violence in the Middle East, gasoline prices are falling in Iowa as we reach November.

Brian Ortner, spokesman for AAA Iowa, says the costs motorists are paying are continuing a slow decline.

A host of factors go into gasoline prices, including the weather, disasters and world events.

Now that summer is solidly in the rearview mirror, Ortner say pump prices should keep dropping.

AAA says the cheapest gas in the state can be purchased in Des Moines at $3.12 a gallon, while the most expensive gas is in Dubuque at $3.41.

However, a check of prices at shows gas can be purchased for $2.81 a gallon in Newton. And prices as high as the $3.80s and $3.90s can be found on the eastern side of the state, according to that website.

That website also shows gas in Sheldon as low as $3.04 per gallon. In other northwest Iowa communities, the lowest price, according to is in Rock Valley, where it’s just $2.89 per gallon. It’s $2.99 in Hull and Sutherland, $3.14 in Sioux Center, $3.19 in Rock Rapids, George, Hartley, and Sibley, $3.21 in Hospers, $3.27 in Hawarden, and $3.34 in Alton and Paullina. Gas can be purchased for $3.39 per gallon in Primghar. And the highest price in our area can be found in Orange City, where it’s $3.41.
