Tampa, FL – Motorists saw little movement in pump prices this week. But gasoline could soon be on the rise as spring approaches due to refinery maintenance, an increase in driving and the switch to summer-blend fuels.
Currently, the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.283, up four-tenths of a cent from last week, down 5 cents from a month ago and 56 cents higher year-over-year.
Some of the lowest regional average gas prices are found in Clarksville and Hopkinsville.
Tampa, FL – Prices at the pump rose slightly this week. The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.279 today, up nearly a penny from last week, down 8 cents from a month ago and an increase of 58 cents over last year.
“Low demand is keeping downward pressure on gasoline prices,” said Josh Carrasco, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “OPEC’s cuts are being offset by increases in domestic oil production, high gasoline and oil inventories and a drop in gasoline demand. Gas prices should remain steady in the near-term before taking their seasonal upswing as we head into the spring.”
