Gas prices will continue to climb as summer hits home stretch

Gas prices will continue to climb as summer hits home stretch

The Dearborn-based auto club says late Sunday the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $2.48 per gallon.

Higher demand for crude oil means the cost of gas is on the rise, according to market analyses. This marks a 14.7 cent increase over Georgia's average price just one year ago. That's 11 cents higher than a week earlier.

Meanwhile, AAA officials expect gas prices to begin decreasing by labor day.

The only two counties with lower week-to-week prices were Van Wert, which saw its prices fall 2 cents, and Hardin, which experienced a 1 cent decline.

Meanwhile, GasBuddy.com's gas price heat map showed that while a majority of tricounty retailers had hiked prices well above $2.20, prices at a few stations still hadn't caught up.

The average price in Broward and Miami-Dade counties was $2.30 - up 7 cents in Broward and 6 cents in Miami-Dade compared to the previous Monday.

Statewide, the average in Florida rose 9 cents in the last week to $2.29. Gasoline prices are cheaper than in most recent years, but the Houston average is still almost 10 cents higher than the near-record lows of 2016.

Of the 10 regularly reported Kansas cities, all experienced price increases in the past week, AAA Kansas notes.

In addition, USA oil inventories have declined by more than 50 million barrels since March.

Watch for some volatility in oil and gasoline prices in the weeks ahead.

"As summer moves forward, the days of falling gas prices appear to be behind us for now", Mary Maguire of AAA said.
