Gasoline prices in Mercer rise above $3

Gasoline prices in Mercer rise above $3

AAA now pegs national gas price average at 2.811 per gallon, highest price per gallon since November 2014 when pump prices averaged $3.34, peaking at $3.70 in April and bottoming out at $2.25 in December.

Average retail gasoline prices in Oklahoma have risen 5.0 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.49/g April 29, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 2,294 gas outlets in Oklahoma.

"Motorists have been spoiled the past few years with affordable gas prices", said Tiffany Wright, AAA Carolinas spokesperson.

Some Mercer County drivers may be crossing the state line to take advantage of gas prices in Trumbull County, which according to Triple A, the average price of $2.57 is the lowest in the state of Ohio.

The data shows Friday is the worst day to buy gas.

The EIA projects that the USA retail price for regular gasoline will average Dollars 2.74 per gallon this summer, up from an average of $2.41 per gallon a year earlier.

The price increase in Kingston comes as analysts had been predicting no change in the price at the pumps Wednesday for other markets in the province. The monthly national average of $2.72 was 33 cents more than the same time previous year, Tennessee's monthly state average of $2.51 was 36 cents more than April 2017. But 2014 also saw prices almost a dollar more expensive than they are now and a quick drop by the end of the year.

Concerns that President Donald Trump is about to impose new sanctions on Iran have sent oil prices climbing, and gas prices are coming along for the ride.

The agency said that for all of 2018, the agency expects that the national retail price for all grades of gasoline will average United States dollars 2.76 a gallon. "We're seeing a higher price environment. but I don't think we're going to look at really apocalyptic numbers". That would translate into an additional $190 spent on fuel by the average USA household this year compared with last, the agency said.

What's Behind Current High Prices?

"If we saw gas prices persistently higher than $3 a gallon, we would see some impact on travel". Outside rural counties are still experiencing the highest prices, particularly in the far West and Northeast of the state. "OPEC is producing less crude oil and the us is exporting more crude oil".

Nationwide prices have gotten even higher.

Of the 10 Kansas cities regularly highlighted by AAA Kansas, eight cities saw gas price increases in the past week.
