Wary Drivers Eye Gas Prices as Summer Nears

Ad Feedback

As Americans start hitting the road for summer vacation, gas prices are on the minds of many.

The Energy Department says drivers can expect to pay about $3.53 a gallon this summer. That's down 10 cents from last year.

AAA's Cynthia Harris cited several reasons for the dip in price.

"There is a large supply of gasoline and there are no refinery issues at this time," she told Capital Public Radio. "As a matter of fact, there is increased refinery production; steady crude oil prices; and also there's a little bit less demand by consumers."

Currently, AAA reports an average price of $3.63 a gallon. Illinois and Michigan are seeing a spike in prices, both with an average of over $4.15.
