Gas prices in Salt Lake City are increasing weekly

AAA Michigan Average gas prices fall 2 cents

Georgia gas prices declined early last week, then rose a total of 7 cents Thursday through Sunday, AAA said. According to GasBuddy historical data, gasoline prices on March 19 in Sacramento have ranged widely over the last five years: $2.87/g in 2017, $2.51/g in 2016, $3.18/g in 2015, $3.80/g in 2014 and $3.99/g in 2013.

The Detroit-area's average daily gas price was about $2.59 per gallon, about 3 cents less than last week's average.

The most expensive gas price averages in Georgia were in Atlanta at $2.49 per gallon, Savannah at $2.46 and Hinesville-Fort Stewart at $2.45.

In Okfuskee County you can find regular unleaded for $2.11 per gallon.

"There are a few of factors that gave gas prices a boost, but this time it wasn't crude oil", spokesman Mark Jenkins said in the press release.

If you are needing to fill up, you might want to fill up today, AAA says gas prices could up at least another 5-cents by the end of the week.

However, gasoline inventories posted the exact opposite, falling 6.3 million barrels to a similar level from a year ago, most likely for similar reasons.

AAA also said gasoline demand, as measured by the Energy Information Administration, climbed by 4 percent week-over-week, and is 4 percent higher than this time a year ago. The report also noted that global supply reached 97.9 million b/d last month, which was fueled by growth in domestic production in the U.S. The figure is 700,000 b/d higher than last year's rate at this time.
