AAA: Gas prices continue to rise in New England

AAA: Gas prices continue to rise in New England

Topeka - $2.10/g, up 5.0 cents per gallon from last week's $2.05/g.

Springfield's gas prices this morning were well below the state average, which increased alongside national figures during the past week. The national average has increased more than 7 cents a gallon during the last month and is 22 cents higher than one year ago. "Unfortunately, motorists are likely to see gasoline prices continue to rise in more places than prices fall, but it's not all bad news- gasoline prices nationally continue to hold somewhat near their summer lows, something that wasn't at all expected earlier this year".

According to AAA Northeast, the average price per gallon has risen almost 11 percent since a year ago at this time, when gas was $0.23 lower. The most expensive fuel in town reported to gasbuddy Sunday was $2.24 per gallon at a store on North Valdosta Road.

"As summer moves forward, the days of dropping summer gas prices appear to be behind us for now", Delise said.

That's 5 cents below the national average but 24 cents higher than the price in MA a year ago at this time.

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

"U.S. crude oil inventories are moving down, while summer gasoline demand is going up - the flawless storm for August price increases", Mary Maguire of AAA said. The Tampa Bay and Orlando markets were right behind with averages of $2.25 per gallon.

AAA found regular selling for as low as $2.15 and as high as $2.53.
