National average price for a gallon of regular unleaded rises 5 cents
Tampa, FL – Fuel prices are still rising after members of OPEC agreed to reduce crude oil production by 1.2 million barrels a day. Since Wednesday’s announcement, gas price averages rose 9 cents in Florida, 4 cents in Georgia, and 6 cents in Tennessee.
“AAA forecasts that gas prices could rise a total of 10 to 15 cents based on the recent surge in crude oil prices,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “How the market responds this week could send prices even further. It’s unclear how much more upside momentum oil prices have, but some analysts believe they could eventually reach $54.00 a barrel. If that happens, the rise in pump prices could reach a quarter.”
