Good news for Pacific motorists at Army and Air Force bases: Gasoline prices for most fuel grades will drop for the month of February — but only by a few cents a gallon in most locations.
The Army and Air Force Exchange Service announced late Thursday that its mid-grade gas prices in Japan and Okinawa will decrease from $1.99 to $1.96 per gallon on Tuesday.
Diesel prices will increase from $1.90 to $2.00.
AAFES does not sell regular unleaded or premium unleaded fuel in Japan and Okinawa.
In South Korea, unleaded fuel dips from $1.90 to $1.85 per gallon, premium unleaded goes from $2.10 to $2.05, and diesel fuel goes from $2.07 a gallon to $2.
Guam customers, meanwhile, will pay $1.86 for unleaded fuel, a savings from January of 8 cents per gallon.
The price for premium unleaded will decrease from $2.14 to $2.07 per gallon.
AAFES noted in its announcement that February’s prices were determined using Department of Energy averages from the weeks beginning Dec. 27 and Jan. 3, 10, 17 and 24.
