Gas prices could near $3 per gallon by the summer

WFLA – On average, you’re paying $8 more for a tank of gas than you were this time last year, and AAA expects prices will rise as much as 70 cents per gallon by summer.

“Most big companies we get supplies from charged us a fuel surcharge when gas prices went up, and they never took it back,” he says. And now, there’s news that gas prices could go up as much as 70 cents a gallon by the summer, according to AAA, which looks at trends in gas prices. Historically, prices bump up between February and Memorial Day, as refineries power down.

“Last year gas prices rose 60 cents in 100 days, but we don’t anticipate a spike overnight,” says Mark Jenkins of AAA.
