Gas prices at multi-year high but may be near peak

Gas prices at multi-year high but may be near peak

States with the lowest average gasoline prices: Missouri ($2.42), Oklahoma ($2.43), Arkansas ($2.43), MS ($2.45), SC ($2.46), Louisiana ($2.47), Kansas ($2.48), Texas ($2.48), Alabama ($2.49) and Wyoming ($2.50). Prices are expected to fall back down after Labor Day. The cost is 25.1 cents a gallon more than a month ago and 33.2 cents more than the same time a year ago. Despite the increase, SC still ranks among the least expensive states for gas prices in the country.

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.

President Donald Trump's midweek tweet that missiles "will be coming" to Syria in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack in that nation was enough propel crude oil prices above $67 a barrel, a almost four-year high, before Friday's actual air strikes.

Chattanooga- $2.45/g, up 3.5 cents per gallon from last week's $2.41/g.

"The seasonal surge at gas pumps is in full motion, causing the most dreaded time of year for fearful motorists, especially of what may still be coming", said Patrick DeHaan, spokesman for GasBuddy.

Data released from the Energy Information Administration last week showed a 3.3 million barrel rise in crude oil inventories and a small 500,000 barrel rise in gasoline inventories as refiners increased inputs to 93.5% of capacity.

If gas prices follow their typical trajectory, they may rise slightly in the next month or so but should start falling after that, DeHaan said.

DeHaan said refinery maintenance has gone well so far, gasoline supply has continued to increase and the transition to summer gasoline supplies is nearly finished. Let's just hope we don't go to extra innings.
