Tampa, FL – Continual growth in the number of U.S. oil rigs and the increased drilling it implies are raising expectations for a climb in domestic oil production.

Today’s national average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $2.27 per gallon, down four cents versus one week ago, five cents less than one month ago, but 47 cents more per gallon year-over-year.

The national average for regular unleaded gasoline currently sits at $2.29 per gallon, which is five cents more than one week ago, 16 cents more than one month ago and 29 cents more year-over-year.
Heading into 2017, gasoline demand is expected to drop drastically during the month of January following the busy holiday travel season.
Tampa, FL – The upward trend continued at the gas pump last week, as the national average rose 4 cents in the past seven days. Pump prices also shot-up 4 cents in Florida, 6 cents in Georgia, and 5 cents in Tennessee.
“Gas prices are moving in concert with crude, which has pushed higher since OPEC announced plans to cut production in January,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “After rising for nearly two weeks, gas prices leveled-off on Sunday. However, the upward trend could resume this week, depending on how the oil market responds to news of a new production-cut agreement from a number of non-OPEC oil-producing countries.”
