Statewide average gas prices increase 9 cents

Statewide average gas prices increase 9 cents

GasBuddy.com's Sunday survey of 3,028 outlets showed S.C. prices averaging $2.46 a gallon.

What's worse? While analysts are predicting a 15-cent surge this week, "Prices could rise even more, depending on how the crude market responds to the latest news of a US missile strike over the weekend", AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said. Growing crude exports, alongside OPEC-led production cuts, have helped stocks decrease over the past year, but the year-over-year decline in stocks has contributed to higher crude prices.

Milani says part of that spike is seasonal as the nation's oil refineries shut down for spring maintenance, and also as they switch over to cleaner burning summer grade gasoline.

Trump Campaign Raises $10.1 Million as Legal Matters Grow
Trump has opted - unlike presidents before him - to begin actively fundraising in the early part of his first term. Trump filed for reelection in the day when he took office, what was an unusual step for an incumbent President.

As tensions mount following weekend USA missile attacks in Syria, gas prices jumped up quickly across the nation. With Baker Hughes, Inc. reporting that the USA added seven oil rigs last week - bringing the total to 815 - crude production in the U.S.is likely to continue growing. As a result, gas prices at the pump have started what is expected to be a steep rise.

According to AAA, the most expensive gas price averages in Georgia Monday were in Atlanta ($2.67), Brunswick ($2.66) and Savannah ($2.66), while the least expensive prices were in Augusta-Aiken ($2.54), Catoosa-Dade-Walker ($2.54) and Warner Robins ($2.55). "With the transition to summer gasoline also wrapping up, the reasons for gas prices to rise will shrink". And California's relatively healthy economy has prompted Golden State residents to hit the road well before the traditional summer driving season.

Last November, a 12-cent increase in the base gasoline excise tax went into effect statewide, pushing the base from 18 cents a gallon to 30 cents.

The ministry also pointed at previous use of chemicals by the rebels in fighting with Syrian government troops. Moscow alleged soon after the suspected April 7 attack that the images of the victims in Douma were fakes.

"Demand from tourism could certainly play a part in it", said AAA Spokesperson Michelle Donati. That was a byproduct of Senate Bill 1 signed into law earlier in 2017 by Gov. However, we're likely in the closing innings of the seasonal rise.

Regardless of the recent rise in prices, we're still no where near what we were paying in 2013 and 2014, where the average price of gas hovered around the $3.55 a gallon mark.
