Massachusetts gas prices inch up a penny per gallon

Gas can still be found below $2 in Killeen area

"Luckily for consumers the price of oil has kept a ceiling on rising gas prices thus far, though that will likely soon change ahead of summer vacations".

GasBuddy reports the national average has fallen 0.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.28 a gallon. As a state, IL is averaging $2.30 per gallon.

Meanwhile, a new AAA survey found that a quarter of all motorists believe existing gas prices are already too high.

A new AAA survey reveals that the national average price for a gallon of gasoline is expected to rise this summer.

Versus last week, gasoline prices fell in all but 10 states: Florida, Texas, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, Colorado, Louisiana, Minnesota, Virginia, and Arizona were states seeing increases, while decliners were led by MI (down 8 cents), OH (down 7 cents), in (down 6 cents) Missouri (down 4 cents) and Wyoming (down 4 cents). "Add another 40 cents and drivers are bound to take notice", Tidwell said.

The survey showed drivers 35 and older remember more affordable gas prices dating back decades.




"Higher gas prices are already influencing the travel industry", Bill Sutherland, senior vice president of travel and publishing for AAA, said in a statement, via AAA. “The good news is people are still planning to hit the road.

Including the change in gas prices in Appleton during the past week, prices Sunday were 11.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 0.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.

Of course, prices traditionally climb steeply in the spring through the summer, so we should be happy with this year's trend.

They might drive at a more steady pace, at a lower speed, monitor their breaking and shop around for less expensive gas to keep down the costs of traveling by vehicle. Brent crude, used to price global oils, added 24 cents to $50.80 a barrel in London. Summer prices typically fluctuate, depending on whether refining capacity is affected by fire or hurricane, she noted.

AAA says the lowest average price was about $2.23 per gallon in the Flint area. "Whether gas prices reach that peak will depend on the direction of oil prices, which have slipped lower in recent weeks".

A new AAA survey finds that almost a quarter of consumers think that the price at the pump is already too high, and many are planning to change their lifestyle or driving habits in response.
