Valdosta's gasoline prices spike

Valdosta's gasoline prices spike

The national average is expected to spike at least 10 cents by the end of the summer, AAA analysts say. After rising in the spring, then taking a nosedive last month, pump prices are climbing once again, only to setup for another plunge in the fall.

Gasoline prices across SC continue a gradual mid-summer rise after reaching a low for the year earlier this month, but the Palmetto State continues to offer the cheapest fuel in the nation. Lee County's average moved to $2.20 per gallon, while Naples sits at $2.25. Petro-Logistics, a company that tracks OPEC's supply and output, forecasts OPEC production to grow by 145,000 barrels per day, AAA said. Moreover, the Energy Information Administration's latest report showed that although crude oil inventories declined by 4.4 million bbl, when compared with the five-year average, the surplus still stands at well over 75 million bbl.

Gas prices in Southeast Tennessee jumped last week by the biggest amount in months, pushing Chattanooga and Cleveland, Tenn., out of the list of cheapest cities in the country to refuel your auto or truck.

The states with the most expensive gasoline prices were: Hawaii ($3.01), California ($2.90), Washington ($2.80), Alaska ($2.72), OR ($2.65), Nevada ($2.60), Pennsylvania ($2.50), Idaho ($2.48), CT ($2.42) and Utah ($2.42).

Kyrie Irving asks Cavaliers to trade him

Motorists can enjoy another dip in gas prices in Las Vegas.

The current national average gas price is $2.28, a significant decrease from April's average of $2.50 a gallon.
