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: Traveling Solo

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I bought my first motorcycle, the first trip I took was to Texas.  I have close friends who live in San Marcos, and I wanted to make sure my first trip was to visit them.  It was one of the most exciting trips I’ve ever been on.  I never thought twice about going it alone.

I’ve traveled all of my life.  As a young military brat, travel was just part of the deal.  I flew from Okinawa to the states in 1969, leaving my family behind to attend a military academy.  It was no big deal, but the world was a different place back then.

When I returned home from Texas, I got numerous calls and texts from friends who told me how proud they were that I did that.  Several made it out to be a really big deal, but I didn’t think anything about it.

AAA says Gas Prices drop Seven Cents at the Pump

 

AAATampa, 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.
