AAA issued this statement today about gas prices:
“The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by six cents. According to data from the Energy Information Administration, gas demand is on the rise amid milder weather. However, the current rate is lower than a year ago. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks fell. Tighter supply and higher gasoline demand are pushing pump prices higher. If demand remains robust and stocks remain tight, drivers could continue to see pump prices increase.”
