AAA says Gas Prices have Stabilized

 

AAATampa, FL – Prices at the pump are moving lower, but face upward pressure due to increased oil prices. Crude oil reached 11-month highs last week and that could lead to higher gasoline prices.

“Rising oil prices typically lead to increased gas prices, but that has not happened yet,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Fortunately, last week’s shift in oil prices was not dramatic and wholesale prices are lower than a week ago, so it’s possible pump prices could get cheaper.”
