Gas prices increase over last week

Including the change in gas prices in CT during the past week, prices yesterday were 20.0 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 0.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. That compares to the national average which is up.4 cents to $2.48 per gallon. In 2013, it cost Americans an average of $3.26 per gallon to fill up. The nation's current average is $2.49 a gallon, according to GasBuddy data.

Costco warehouse stores sell their gas only to members.

In Broward, a Chevron station at the intersection of West Hillsboro Boulevard and South Military Trail in Deerfield Beach was selling for $2.29, as was Wawa at the intersection of Southwest 12th Avenue and West Hillsboro Boulevard. Gasoline inventories jumped by almost 5 million barrels while distillate inventories, made up of heating oil and diesel, gained almost 9 million barrels even amidst high demand due to cold weather.

"While gasoline prices overall remain affordable, one aspect that continues to worsen is the gap between what stations are charging".

"That's why I tell people that if they don't shop around, they are losing money", DeHaan said. The national gas bill is expected to increase to $364.4 billion.

The average dropped 1 cent to $2.39 in the Jacksonville area.

In November 2016, the Measure L half-cent sales tax passed in Stanislaus County with 71 percent approval.

Gas prices have held relatively steady during the first seven days of the year, according to the auto club AAA. The EIA pegged gasoline demand at 9.485 million barrels a day for the week ended December 22, from 9.278 million barrels the same time past year.

But January doesn't always indicate how prices will move throughout a year, AAA noted. The Sherman-Denison area saw the largest increase on the week, with regular unleaded prices going up by an average of seven cents per gallon.

AAA warns consumers to anticipate prices to be on the rise as weather warms up due to hurricanes affecting refineries maintenance.
