FARGO, North Dakota — Motorists in Bismarck are paying the lowest average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in more than six years.
AAA North Dakota says the last time the Bismarck metro average was lower than Monday's $1.92 per gallon was in March 2009, when the price dipped to $1.88.
The North Dakota statewide average is $2.08, the lowest since February, when the average fell to $1.98.
About 40 percent of all stations in North Dakota now offer gasoline at under $2 a gallon. In Fargo, the average is $1.88, and in Grand Forks it's $2.05.
The national average Monday was $2.04 per gallon. AAA says oversupply and a strengthening U.S. dollar continue to impact global oil markets, keeping downward pressure on the price of crude oil.
