Gas prices will rise this summer but should remain low

  • Gasoline prices are on the rise as seen on west Lindsay St. on Thursday

Motorists can find current gas prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad, and Android. Among the four states, Utah saw a record decrease of three cents with Idaho down two cents, Hawaii, down one cent and California, unchanged.

There's been a big spike in gasoline prices in the past week in Jacksonville, the state and across the nation. "There is lower demand this year because of the pent-up demand we saw last year".

"Also, many refineries have begun producing and selling summer-blend fuels, which are more expensive to produce". Prices will only become volatile if "something large disrupts the flow of oil somewhere and oil prices and thus gas prices rise proportionally". Following were California ($2.99), Washington ($2.89), Alaska ($2.82) and OR ($2.74).

Tucson- $2.17/g, up 0.4 cents per gallon from last week's $2.16/g.

Oil is now $5 per barrel higher than just a few weeks ago, which DeHaan said is the main culprit for rising gas prices.

"The jump at the pump has continued", said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy. "It is too early to know how severe or how long the impact to oil prices may be". The Libyan production outage means that one source for crude oil is compromised and may affect global oil supply.

"Syria produces very little oil and does not export to the world market". "With Russia condemning the attack, an escalation of tensions between the USA and Russia (and perhaps Iran) will be closely watched as a barometer of risk appetite". But that momentum was slowed in March as increased domestic oil production kept crude prices below $50 until last week, when the per-barrel benchmark crude price finished the week at $52.24. The state also would charge $100 per year, starting in 2020, for electric vehicles.

"Gas prices should continue their normal trend this time of year, which is an upward trend". But not everyone is predicting a steep hike.

The convenience stores association's Consumer Fuels Survey said last week that motorists indicated that gas prices would have to reach at least $3.37 per gallon before they would cut back on driving.
