Sacramento-area gas prices barely moved over the past week.
In its weekly report released today, national gas price tracker GasBuddy.com put the average price of gas in the area at $3.48 a gallon, down 0.7 cents from last week.
GasBuddy data are based on a survey of 720 stations in the area.
The current at-the-pump price is 13.7 cents per gallon lower than a year ago, but it's about 9.2 cents higher than last month.
Nationally, GasBuddy said, the average price of gas fell 0.6 cents to $3.26 a gallon - 1.4 cents lower than last month and 8.7 cents cheaper than a year ago.
The national average has remained nearly unchanged since Jan. 1, coming off a record yearlong average of $3.60 a gallon in 2012.
"The holiday buzz is wearing off, and wholesale gasoline prices have fizzled," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy. "It appears that this year there will be little change in gas prices between Christmas and mid-January, something that has only happened one out of the last seven years."
DeHaan also noted that gas inventories have rebounded sharply since Christmas Day.
"It's hard for prices to rally with the monster increases in supply we've been seeing," he said.
