Valdosta gas prices rise again


US oil production continued to show strength and now stands at its highest level since 1970, but the rise doesn't come close to offsetting OPEC's 1.8 million barrel per day production cut enacted to start 2017.

According to a recent survey from AAA, the United States won't see a drop in gas prices anytime soon.

In Gwinnett County, gas prices have slowly decreased and sit below the state average.

The average gas price increase in Baton Rouge is nearly double that of the national average, which last week was 1.9 cents per gallon.

The average Cleveland price today is $2.44, below the average OH price of $2.47 and well below the national average price of $2.60, GasBuddy figures. Gas prices have increased one cent from last month's average and have increased 37.9 cents from last year's average.

The only good news for consumers is that crude oil prices took a rest from a four-month upswing, as West Texas Intermediate crude closed at $65.45 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange on Friday - 17 cents less than the previous week.

The price of gasoline in MA is up three cents this week.

However, this past week, prices for crude oil leveled out and oil supply showed an increase according to the latest report released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

In the quest for the tricounty region's lowest gas prices, anything under $2.50 was basically a bargain on Monday, and those stations were few and far between.

"The damage could get even worse as refinery maintenance season and summer gasoline is on the horizon". Countries outside of the agreement, such as the US, have seen production grow as global demand has grown, enabling these countries to export more oil while OPEC and its allies reduce production.

The most expensive gas price averages in Georgia were in Brunswick at $2.53 per gallon, Savannah at $2.52 and Hinesville-Fort Stewart at $2.52.
