Gas prices stabilizing nationally but still climbing locally?
Thank you government of Florida for once again cheating the public that you should be working for!
Although the U.S. gets very little petroleum from Iraq, concerns of a supply disruption 10 days ago boosted oil prices, which has a domino effect on the price of gasoline. “The price of oil influences about two-thirds the price of gasoline,” Jenkins continued. “When the price of oil surges, retailers have to pay more for gasoline and that higher cost is then passed along to motorists.”
Gas prices that had been rising in recent days stabilized over the weekend. The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded had risen 5 cents in Florida and 6 cents in Georgia before flattening.
Such a deal!
