Average gas price in Oregon now at $3.89 a gallon

PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

The AAA auto club reports the average price of gasoline in Oregon is $3.89 a gallon.

That's up 23 cents in a week and 41 cents in a month. It's 19 cents higher than the national average.

Some metro prices from AAA's survey for Monday are higher than the state average:

  • Portland $3.90
  • Salem $3.90
  • Eugene-Springfield $3.95
  • Medford-Ashland $3.96.

AAA spokeswoman Marie Dodds says the statewide average is lower than the metro prices because changes are slower to work their way through rural areas.

She says the daily AAA price updates come through the Oil Price Information Service, based on credit card transactions at service stations.
