- Last Year's Average Price: $3.55
AAA says although gasoline demand has decreased, tight supply and fluctuating oil prices have increased the national average price.
In addition, the effects of natural disasters, like Hurricane Ian, could potentially disrupt major gas lines.
“Slack demand and lower oil prices should take some pressure off rising gas prices,” said AAA spokesperson, Andrew Gross.
“But Hurricane Ian could cause problems, depending on the storm’s track, by disrupting oil production in the Gulf of Mexico and impacting large coastal refineries.”
