Tampa, FL – The national gas price average is $2.79, which is an eight-cent increase since the beginning of July. Gas prices have increased amid more expensive crude oil prices, robust demand and decreasing gasoline stocks.
Since last Monday, 18 states have seen their gas price averages increase by at least a nickel. Hurricane Barry, which made landfall in Louisiana this past weekend, seems to have had little impact on the national average.
Tampa, 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.
Montgomery County, TN – The unexpired term of the District 3 Clarksville-Montgomery County School Board seat has been filled by Herbert A. Nelson, Jr., a 20-year U.S. Army veteran with seven years working elite Special Operations and counter-terrorism missions
Tampa, FL – AAA reports that since Memorial Day the national average dropped six cents on the week, following a consistent downward trend.
The decline is unusual for this time of year. Pump prices usually trickle higher during the summer months due to increased demand. However, the latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) report reveals that total domestic gasoline inventories jumped a million bbl last week, helping to push pump prices lower.
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 – AAA says that today’s national average is $2.81, which is two cents cheaper than last week, eight cents less than last month and 13 cents less than last year.
With the exception of the Rockies states, Alaska and Indiana, motorists across the country are saving as much as 23 cents/gallon to fill up as compared to last month.
Tampa, FL – AAA says the vast majority of the 37.6 million Americans who hit the road this past Memorial Day weekend found savings at the pump compared to last year’s holiday. Today, 42 states and Washington, D.C. have gas price averages that are less expensive year-over-year, with Floridians (-31 cents) seeing the largest yearly change. Motorists in West Coast states are the exception, paying nearly double-digits more than last May to fill up.
Washington, D.C. – On May 5th, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers three years after the Civil War ended.
On May 30th, it was declared that Decoration Day should be observed by Major General John A. Logan.
It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.
The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
Tampa, FL – According to AAA, Gas prices are nearly six cents cheaper in some states across the country on the week, which has pushed the national gas price average cheaper by a penny to $2.85 today.
That average could have been even lower had a handful of Midwest states not seen prices increase by more than a nickel due to ongoing refinery maintenance.
Tampa, FL – Declining slowly but steadily across the country, gas prices are pushing the national average down three cents on the week to $2.86.
Today’s average is four cents cheaper than last month and the same price as one year ago. In fact, 25 states have gas price averages that are just a nickel or less expensive than this time last year.
