Gas prices steadily dropping in Bellingham

Posted by DAVE GALLAGHER on August 14, 2013 

Gasoline prices have steadily dropped in Bellingham the past week.

The average price for a gallon of gas in the Bellingham metro area was $3.92 on Wednesday, Aug. 14, according to AAA Washington's Daily Fuel Gauge Report. That's down 8 cents in the past week and 9 cents compared to a year ago.

The Bellingham metro area has the highest gas prices in the state among major metro areas, according to AAA Washington. The next highest metro area was Seattle, at $3.87 a gallon. The least expensive gas was in Tacoma, at $3.80 a gallon.

While Bellingham's prices are among the highest in the state, gas here is still attractive to British Columbia residents. An article in The Province newspaper of Vancouver, B.C., indicates prices are as high as $1.44 per liter in some lower mainland metro areas, about $5.45 a U.S. gallon. B.C. has some of the highest gas prices in North America, according to the article.
