AAA Predicts Gas Prices Will Stay High Through Summer and into Fall

posted by Newsradio WHAM 1180 - 

The national average gasoline price has tipped upwards, but the statewide average continued to drop over the last week, down to just more than $3.00 per gallon.

The average for the five-county Rochester region is $2.96, down two cents from last week. Buffalo is unchanged at $3.00, and Syracuse is up by a penny at $2.92.

The price drop is slowing because national gasoline supply is down and production has fallen a bit. Crude oil supplies are also dropping as gasoline demand stays high. 

The AAA expects gasoline prices to stay high through the summer and into the fall.
