AAA: Gas prices continue to rise in New England

AAA: Gas prices continue to rise in New England

AAA unveiled their look at gas prices in the Sunshine State and across the nation on Monday.

Prices at the pump fell throughout June courtesy of an unexpected dip in crude oil prices, but gasoline prices rose during much of July and they're continuing that upward trajectory in August.

Other areas in metro Detroit with their current gas prices include Ann Arbor at #2.44 per gallon, down five cents, Flint at $2.32 a gallon, down 13.6 cents, and Toledo at $2.21 a gallon, down 7.4 cents.

Kentucky prices yesterday were 28 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago, and are up 7 cents from one month ago. "Steady declines in crude supplies have pushed oil prices about $10 per barrel higher than a year ago, making it more expensive to produce gasoline".

"There's probably an even chance they'll go about where the 2017 highs were in April, where we got to $2.43 to $2.44 a gallon", he said.




Wholesale gasoline rose 1 cent to $1.65 a gallon.

Cincinnati: $2.23/g, down 9.4 cents per gallon from last week's $2.32/g.

AAA says US crude oil inventories are moving down, while the demand for gasoline is going up, causing increases this month.

AAA says the lowest average price was about $2.32 per gallon in the Saginaw, Bay City and Midland areas.
