Gas prices on the rise in Billings, country

Tuesday is the Best Day to Buy Gas in California, Friday the Worst

Tuesday is the Best Day to Buy Gas in California, Friday the Worst

"Motorists have been spoiled the past few years with inexpensive gas prices", said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. The lowest pump price - $2.52 at Costco. But the experts say you'll see prices in the $2 range all summer.

"What's going on is absolute cut-throat competition, all of those gas stations knew it was costing them a dollar twenty-six to buy their fuel if they want to dump it at a dollar twenty-three that's fine but understand when you need to come up for air you can't sell at a dollar twenty-three when the cost to replace it is much higher". In addition, smaller issues driving prices up include refinery maintenance season, which is beginning to wrap up, and the switch-over to summer gasoline, which is also nearing completion.

Tulsa - $2.51/g, up 10.2 cents per gallon from last week's $2.41/g.

Gasoline prices are at their highest levels since 2014 and will continue to rise through Memorial Day - with many metro areas across the nation already seeing prices of over $3 per gallon, according GasBuddy, an industry watchdog. "The higher prices at the pump are mainly a result of a tightening oil market, which leaves us prone to price hikes based on geopolitical tensions and supply shortage concerns".

"We're seeing a higher price environment. but I don't think we're going to look at really apocalyptic numbers", he said. "Now that the upward momentum slows down, people will get a little more used to paying it".

Still, prices remain well off from 2008, when crude oil prices jumped above Dollars 130 per barrel and average retail gas prices surged to an all-time high of USD 4.11 per gallon.

While the pace of traffic volume growth has slowed, it is still higher than ever this year, Turnpike Executive Director Peter Mills said.

The average price was unchanged Sunday and Monday after rising 17 of 18 days.

Mr Tom Kloza, global head of energy analysis for Oil Price Information Service, said that "This will be the most expensive driving season since 2014". About 25 percent of drivers start to combine errands, reduce dinners out, and shop and drive less after prices go over $2.75, said Pat Moody, director of public affairs for Northern New England. They begin letting their vehicles get closer to empty so that they don't have to spend as much money each week keeping the auto filled.
