AAA reports Gas Prices Rise 6-10 Cents in One Week

 

AAATampa, FL – Motorists likely noticed an increase in prices at the pump last week. Gas prices are following their seasonal upward trend, increasing an average of 6 cents in the past week. The national average rose 11 days in a row – the longest streak of increases since May 2015 – for a total of 11 cents before leveling-out on Sunday. 

“Shifts in the price of oil, supply and demand, and refinery maintenance, are all factors pushing gas prices higher,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Fuel supplies usually tighten this time of year as Americans begin taking spring vacations and refineries reduce output while conducting seasonal maintenance. These factors will likely push gas prices 30-50 cents higher by Memorial Day weekend.”

As the 82nd Airborne Division returns to Fort Bragg, NC, they leave the Iraqi security forces, or ISF, stronger than they were when the division arrived in June.

“The Iraqi army has transformed dramatically over the past year, and that positive change is in part thanks to the professionalism, commitment and leadership of the 82nd Airborne Division,” said Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland, commander of the Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve.

"While the efforts of the coalition have contributed to defeating Daesh, the most important work has been done by our Iraqi partners," said Major Gen. Gary J. Volesky. "They have made the largest sacrifice. Their success in taking back Ramadi changed the course of this fight and they have put Daesh on the defensive and continue to take the fight to them more and more everyday. We will work tirelessly to help them remove Daesh from their land once and for all."
