You may have noticed, quite recently, that the price of a gallon of gas is beginning to fall somewhat significantly.

Just the other day, I saw where it had actually dipped below the $3 threshold for the first time in a long time.  That made me wonder, "where can I find the cheapest gas in Yakima?"

The folks at have developed a very useful website that is user-driven to track the always fluctuating price of fuel.

As of today, the average price of 87 octane unleaded gas in Yakima is $3.18 which is 16 cents lower than the $3.34 paid on average in Washington state.  It is also lower than the national average of $3.32/gallon. currently lists seven filling stations selling regular for under $3.  Six of those happen to be ARCO fueling stations along with one Conoco store.
