Bidding War Produces 78 Cent a Gallon Gasoline

Houston-area fuel costs remain flat, but the national average price for gasoline fell by almost 2 cents in the past week because of plummeting oil prices.

OPEC's move to cut its production helped oil prices initially, but then United States companies ramped up production and supplies. The five states taking the largest increases were Utah (up 8 cents a gallon), OR (8 cents), Alaska (5 cents), Washington (5 cents) and Idaho (3 cents).

The fact that this has happened again highlights the shale industry's revival that was kickstarted at the end of a year ago, after an OPEC agreement with another 11 producers saw prices jump to the mid-$50s and stay there, although they fell short of reaching the much more desired $60 level.

Gas prices have declined nationwide over the last week.

That said, "This downward trend may only be temporary", AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said.
