National Gas Prices Inch Upward by Two Cents: A Year-on-Year Increase of 12 Cents
According to the ButlerRadio, on a national scale, the average gas price increased by two cents over the past week, reaching $3.83 per gallon. Although this is only one cent less than the price recorded a month ago, it marks a 12-cent increase compared to the rates from one year ago. This slight upturn in gas prices can be attributed to a modest rise in both the demand for gas and the cost of oil.
The increase in oil prices is partially influenced by Saudi Arabia’s decision to prolong its voluntary production cut of one million barrels per day through the end of the year.
