Tampa, FL – AAA says that the national gas price average has steadily declined for seven weeks, pushing the average cheaper by 61-cents to $1.86 today. During this time frame (since late February), United States demand for gasoline has decreased 44% to 5 million b/d as gasoline inventories build across the country.
“We are seeing fast and furious gasoline demand destruction. The latest data reveals demand levels not seen since spring of 1968,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “Every U.S. region is seeing builds in gasoline inventories and crude storage, which is just driving pump prices even cheaper.”
Tampa, FL – Today’s national gas price average is $1.92. That is nine cents cheaper than last Monday, 48 cents less than a month ago and 81 cents less expensive than a year ago.
On the week, pump prices continued to push less expensive with gasoline demand registering at its lowest point since 1993.
St. Louis, MO – Austin Peay State University (APSU) men’s basketball junior forward Terry Taylor has been named to the United States Basketball Writers Association’s (USBWA) All-District IV team, announced Tuesday.
Tampa, FL – The national gas price average is $2.47, which is four cents cheaper than last week and 11 cents cheaper than the beginning of the year. Motorists are paying less to fill up especially as crude oil prices are less expensive.
“Gas prices are pushing cheaper for two reasons. Crude oil prices are $10.00 less a barrel than one month ago and U.S. gasoline stocks sit at an all-time record high,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Austin Peay State University Basketball’s Chris Horton an LNB All-Star among Govs overseas highlights
Clarksville, TN – Former Austin Peay State University (APSU) men’s basketball standout Chris Horton is enjoying a career year in France, earning All-Star honors for the 2020 LNB All-Star Game.
The fourth-year pro moved from Kymi in the Greek Basket League—where he averaged a league-leading 9.1 rebounds, 13.6 points and 1.6 blocks last season—to Cholet in the LNB Pro A.
Tampa, FL – AAA says the national gas price average held steady on the week at $2.58, but that could change depending on the movement of crude oil prices due to geopolitical concerns.
Following airstrikes in Baghdad last Friday, which killed Iran’s Major General Qassem Soleimani, crude oil prices increased, causing market speculation about what could happen to gas prices in the near-term.
Tampa, FL – A year-end spike in road trip travel due to the holidays helped to push the national average more expensive on the week – up four cents to $2.58. Compared to last month, the national average is the same price, but 31 cents more expensive than the end of 2018.
“The majority of states saw gas prices increase in the last week – some by as much as a nickel to a dime, but any spikes in gas prices that motorists are seeing will be short-lived,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
Tampa, FL – AAA says the end of the year historically ushers in some of the cheapest gas prices of the year. This was true in 2018 when the national gas price average was recorded at $2.26 on December 31st.
However, the national gas price average won’t go that low this month. AAA forecasts that gas prices will edge lower than they are today with the national average falling between $2.40-$2.45, which will be 15-20 cents more than last December.
Tampa, FL – December is finally bringing cheaper gas prices to pumps across the country. Today’s average is $2.55, which is nearly a nickel cheaper than the beginning of the month.
Decreasing gasoline demand and increasing stocks are driving the change in pump prices. The latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports show gasoline demand at its lowest rate since mid-February and the highest stock levels since this summer.
