Tampa, FL – There is downward pressure at the gas pump, but not to the point that many motorists will notice. Gas prices are declining by fractions of a penny per day. However, that does add up over time. During the past week, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded declined 2 cents in Florida and Georgia, and 1-cent in Tennessee.
“Gas prices are beginning to follow that downward trend we are used to seeing in January, as gasoline demand typically hits its lowest point of the year,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
Knoxville, TN – All signs are pointing to a busy year for vacationers and the travel industry. According to a recent AAA Consumer Pulse™ survey, 78 percent of Tennesseans are planning to take a vacation in 2017 – with most planning trips to warm weather destinations in the U.S. and abroad.
Almost three out of four (72%) Tennessee travelers will take one to three vacations in 2017, with the highest percentage of trips (41%) planned during the period of April-June.
Tampa, FL – Motorists saw little change at the pump last week. Compared to a week ago, average prices remained the same in Florida, and rose 1-cent in Georgia and Tennessee.
“Frozen gas prices are a good sign that we could soon see some relief at the pump,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Now that the holidays are over and cold weather is moving across much of the country, gasoline demand should drop, and prices could too.”
Tampa, FL – The New Year began with increased gas prices reaching today’s average of $2.34 per gallon. The national average has moved higher for 34 of the past 35 days, largely due to market reactions to last fall’s OPEC deal. Pump prices increased by five cents on the week, by 18 cents per gallon on the month, and are up by 34 cents on the year.
Moving into 2017, retail prices will continue to hinge on the ability of cartel countries to successfully implement production cuts, but retail averages are likely to increase leading up to the summer driving season as seasonal refinery maintenance gets underway this spring.
