AAA says high Oil and Gas production pushes prices down

 

AAATampa, FL – The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline remained relatively stable last week. However, prices in the southeast fell as much as a nickel. In the past week, the average price for gas dropped 2 cents in Florida, 5 cents in Georgia, and 4 cents in Tennessee.

“Gasoline production is especially high this time of year, and is outpacing demand, which is driving gas prices lower,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Meanwhile, domestic oil production remains at an all-time high, which also helps keep a lid on the price of oil and gasoline. In fact, oil production is so high, some analysts believe oil prices could fall into the 30s this year, which could force gas prices back down to levels we saw earlier this year.” «Read the rest of this article»
