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.”
