AAA Fuel Analyst Expects Gas Prices To Go Up
Gas prices have been staying around the same for the holidays so far. American Automobile Association spokesperson Mike Write says pump prices have hovered around $3, largely due to relatively low crude oil prices for the past several weeks. But Write says that's no longer the case. He says gas is bumping up against $100 a barrel, meaning he expects prices to start going up again.
Today's statewide average price of regular gas is $3.08; a penny higher than Monday, but nearly 20-cents higher than last year. Write says supply and demand may mean small price jumps, but nothing like what we saw last summer, when gas was close to $4.
