Gas prices nationally have continued to decrease since June of this year — prices haven’t been this low since early March of 2022.
Today’s national gas price is $3.76, while New Hampshire’s average is $3.799. Yesterday’s average was $3.8, and a month ago, it sat at $4.2 per gallon. Unfortunately, the majority of gas stations in New Hampshire are over the national average.
According to AAA, 9 out of ten counties in New Hampshire are above the national average, with Grafton County leading the charge with $3.895. Coos County won the award for the second highest gas prices in the state with $3.858, and Carol County followed close behind at $3.846.
Cheshire is the lowest gas priced county at $3.746, which is the only county that is under the national average.
Earlier this year, the Gas Prices Relief Act was introduced by U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) to lower gas prices. Although the act did not proceed throughout the legislature, prices have dropped by over a dollar since June.
As prices continue to trend downward, we hope to have a more affordable holiday season!
