AAA reports Domestic Gasoline Stocks Soar, Push Down Gas Prices

 

AAATampa, FL – AAA says the national gas price average, $2.64, represents a seven-cent drop on the week as domestic gasoline stocks built by a surprising 4.4 million bbl, according to the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) latest data.

Contributing to the build was at least 1.2 million b/d of imports at U.S. ports. With the large bump, stocks now sit 235 million bbl – a U.S. stock level not seen in nearly five months (end of March).

AAA reports Gas Price Increases at the Pump Slowing Across the Country

 

AAATampa, FL – On the week, AAA says all but eight states saw gas price averages push cheaper or remain stable. At $2.76, the national gas price average is three cents less expensive than last Monday. This is the first time in four weeks that the national average has seen a weekly decline.

“Gasoline stocks remain robust amid a recent dip in demand, which could be one reason we are seeing pump prices starting to roll back,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Those states include California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Vermont.

AAA says Going Against Usual Trends, Demand Drives Gas Prices Down Even Lower

 

AAATampa, FL – For the week ending June 14th, 2019, U.S. gasoline demand hit its highest level at 9.93 million b/d. It is the highest level ever recorded since the Energy Information Administration (EIA) began publishing data in 1991.

Counterintuitively, as motorists drive demand to new heights, pump prices pushed even cheaper across the country on the week. This is due to the recent trend in cheaper crude pricing and because crude comprises roughly 60% of the costs people pay at the pump, drivers are seeing summer savings.

Dodging the Roadkill: The People You Need In A Time Of Need

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve only been riding for 3 1/2 years and have logged over 130,000 miles, on three motorcycles.   

During that time, I’ve been very fortunate to not find myself in any mechanical trouble, or breakdown while traveling.  I try to prepare myself for each trip, inspecting my bike and tires before I go, but as you know if you follow my blog, I am NOT mechanically inclined. 

That all changed this week, as you can read here.

Traveling on a holiday and having a breakdown, poses more challenges as there is absolutely NOBODY working.  Especially mechanics, motorcycle shops etc.
