Weekly Drop in Gasoline Prices a First for 2018

AAA Michigan: Statewide average gas prices fall 10 cents

But a check of Monday's gas prices throughout the region turned up something for everyone.

You might have noticed, the cost of a gallon of gasoline has been climbing.

Prices are still almost 30 cents a gallon higher than a year ago and more than 9 cents higher than a month ago.

Even with the decrease, average gas prices are still higher than they were on this day a year ago - to the tune of 15.6 cent per gallon in IL and 29.4 cents per gallon nationally.

Tunisia back on the map for Thomas Cook tours
As soon as the FCO decision was made public, travel agencies like Thomas Cook flew British tourists to Tunisian holiday resorts. The company did not stop selling package holidays to French, German and Belgian tourists after the Sousse attack.

"After seeing strong gasoline demand and high crude oil prices drive gas prices to an unseasonable winter price increase trend since the start of the year, drivers are finally seeing some relief, at least for now", said Jennifer Haugh, AAA Kansas spokeswoman. "Motorists filling up in the Midwest, South and East Coast are most likely to see the positive change at the pump", said AAA Kansas' Haugh.

The price of a gallon of gas has gradually been increasing over the past three weeks.

"As the Dow Jones average swung violently, oil prices lost considerable ground, falling below $60 per barrel for the first time this year", DeHaan said. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, prices began to shift midway through last week with gains in both domestic production and inventory. For instance, at Yamato and Jog roads in Boca Raton, automobilists could opt to pay $3.24 a gallon at the Mobil station on Glades Road and Northwest Seventh Avenue. Or they could head northwest and pay $2.41 at the new Wawa at the corner of State Road 7 and West Copans Road in Margate. In February 2017, the average gas price in Hampton Roads was $2.06. In addition, GasBuddy.com is reporting the most low-priced gas in the county is $2.25 on Peachtree Industrial Blvd in Peachtree Corners and along Stone Mountain Hwy in Snellville. The lowest was in Tucson, Arizona, at $2.26 a gallon.
