Gas Prices Approach Spring Peak

By Jim McCoy Tue 29th April NewsAAAgas prices
AAA expects gas prices to peak for the spring in the next few weeks, and drivers will likely pay more for gas in May than they will this summer. In the meantime, consumers have to contend with increasing pump prices. The national average for regular unleaded goes up two-and-a-half cents this week to $3.69 a gallon, while the Oregon average jumps a nickel to $3.88. The national and Oregon averages are well above year-ago prices when the national average was $3.50 a gallon and Oregon’s was $3.59. Still, both averages are less than they were on the same dates in both 2011 and 2012. The switch to summer-blend fuel and higher crude oil prices continue to put upward pressure on retail gas prices.
