Montana Gas Price

As of February 22, 2021 –


Montana gas prices have risen 1.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.39/g today, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 615 stations in Montana. Gas prices in Montana are 11.6 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 1.2 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

Special Release 2/17/21 – Motorists should brace themselves for even higher gas prices in the days ahead, enhanced by the extreme cold weather hitting much of the country. According to GasBuddy, the national average price of gasoline may jump 10-20 cents per gallon from its current price of $2.54 per gallon over the next two weeks as millions of barrels of refining capacity have gone offline due to the extreme cold in the South. Little relief is predicted on the horizon as overall gasoline demand continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
