West Seattle Gas Price Watch: Price plunge persists

fourohonegas.jpgThat’s the California/Andover 76 station a short time ago; same price for regular at California/Charlestown 7-11 nearby. Looks like the next “below $4″ sighting in West Seattle may not be that far away after all. Overall, though, seems we West Coast-ers are still the ones paying the most, according to this national update (Oklahoma has the cheapest average, $3.60/gallon).

  1. Are the falling gas prices responsible for the recent increase in traffic? Seems like the past coupla days have been tough commutes at rush hours.

  2. The Delridge Exxon posted $3.99 this morning for regular gas down from yesterday’s price of $4.03.

  3. All that oil coming from Alaska and we’re still paying more than the national average, oh, that’s right the Alaska oil is also going to Asia!

  8. I wish gas prices and traffic had a relationship but yeah traffic has been horrible these past few days on I 90, WS bridge and I 5. This morning it took me an hour + to get from 35th to I 90 on the bridge because of an accident at the convention center. Traffic never seemed to get lighter when gas was as high as it was.
