Drivers brace for higher gas prices

Gas Prices Rise 3.5 Cents In Chattanooga

Alaska- $3.22/g, up 6.8 cents per gallon from last week's $3.15/g.

AAA says high demand for gas and higher oil prices than past year are driving up prices.

AAA says get ready for a spike in fuel prices.

The report notes, "regional differences in retail gasoline prices can be significant".

This comes on the heels of recent weeks of flat prices or slow cost increases, when crude oil prices were hit by some steep dips in stock markets and concerns about a tariff battle between the United States and China. The price is the highest the nation has seen in almost three years.

The Dearborn-based auto club said late Sunday that the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $2.78 per gallon. A look at gas price-tracking site GasBuddy shows gas stations across the city and burbs charging in that general range... although a handful of north side locations have already passed the $3 mark.

Donovan Mitchell says he 'feels fine' after hurting toe
However, the former Louisville standout did suffer an injury during Game 1 that forced him to the sideline, albeit briefly. Jazz coach Quin Snyder said all signs point to Mitchell being ready for Game 2 on Wednesday.

"In the past few years we've had such an abundance of crude oil that global problems really didn't phase the oil market", Jenkins said.

Chattanooga had Tennessee's cheapest gasoline on Monday at $2.46 a gallon.

Be prepared to pay more at the pump, AAA Western and Central New York reported Monday that the national gas price jumped five cents in a week with similar trends here in New York State. Prices traditionally start their seasonal rise in mid-February as refiners begin maintenance that enables them to transition to producing more expensive summer-blend gasoline.

"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, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

Gas prices in Virginia have continued to increase over the last week, resulting in an average price of $2.52 per gallon in Hampton Roads, according to AAA Tidewater.

"That could be very close to what we expect this time around", DeHaan said.
