Tampa, FL – AAA says that today’s national average is $2.74, which is seven-cents cheaper than last week, 13-cents less than a month ago and 18 cents cheaper than a year ago. Nearly every state’s gas price average is cheaper than a week ago, a month ago and a year ago.
“Refinery utilization in the United States is at its highest level since early January, resulting in overall gasoline stocks at healthy levels to meet robust summer demand. Prices are dropping due to cheaper crude oil and at the same time U.S. supply is keeping pace with demand,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Tampa, FL – According to AAA At the end of last week, total domestic crude oil inventories rose less than expected – a build of only 1.3 million bbl to total 447.2 million bbl, according to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
The slight build in crude inventories was supported by a sharp drop in demand for gasoline, which fell by approximately 500,000 b/d to 9.1 million b/d, according to EIA. With crude stockpiles growing less than anticipated, crude prices will likely continue to gain ground.
