AAA says for now Gas Prices continue to drift lower

 

Clarksville, Hopkinsville has some of the cheapest Gas in Tennessee

AAATampa, FL – Gas prices have declined 14 of the last 16 days. During that time, the national average price  has declined 2 cents. Pump prices have drifted lower on increased inventories and declining oil prices.   

“Gas prices are falling now, but fundamentals are pointing higher,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Gulf Coast refineries are moving into their peak maintenance season, causing them to reduce gasoline production at a time when demand is slowly rising. This seasonal trend, could push gas prices 25-50 cents higher by June, unless oil prices do not recover as expected.”

Crude oil prices recorded a new 2017 low last week.

AAA says as Oil Plummets Gas Prices could fall 5-10 Cents

 

AAATampa, FL – The falling price of oil dragged gas prices lower last week. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.30, down 1-cent from the week before, a downward trend that is likely to continue in the near future.

“The oil market suffered a ‘mini collapse’ last week, following reports of a record build in domestic crude oil,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “This will postpone the customary spring-time gas price spike. Prices could drop 5-10 cents in the short term, but this downward trend may only be temporary.”

AAA reports Average Gas Prices Remain Steady Despite Low Demand

 

AAATampa, FL – National gas prices have increased fractions of a penny to reach today’s average price for regular unleaded gasoline, which is $2.28 per gallon. Today’s average is the same as one week ago, five cents less compared to one month ago and 56 cents more than the same date last year.

Prices continue to remain flat due to lower driving demand and an oversupplied market as a result of increased U.S. production. As refinery maintenance season begins and driving demand increases, we could expect to see some of the gasoline supply in the U.S. soaked up.
