Tampa, 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.”
Tampa, FL – Gas prices are holding steady after inching up last week. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.31 – nearly 3 cents more than a week ago. Compared to last year, motorists are paying 50 cents more for a gallon of gasoline and $7.00 more for a full tank of gas.
“Last week’s price hike is pretty normal for this time of year, and there will likely be more of that to come in the next few months,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
Tampa, FL – Refineries are easing into maintenance season, which normally signals a gradual increase in prices at the pump. Throughout the past five years, gas prices rose 35-70 cents from February to Memorial Day, and motorists should expect the same this year.
“The seasonal increase hasn’t begun yet, but it’s coming,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
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.”
