Although oil prices remain stable at this time, demand for diesel and heating oil has increased causing U.S. stockpiles of crude to drop by 6.2 million barrels during the week of November 13. While crude stockpiles decreased, gasoline inventories increased 4.5 million barrels during the same week.
"The price of oil will yo-yo as long as there is not a solid plan in place to resolve Europe's debt issues," said Jessica Brady, AAA spokesperson, The Auto Club Group. "However, if gasoline demand remains weak, consumers could see prices at the pump fall even further as we enter the holiday season."
The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline decreased 5 cents from last week for an average of $3.30 per gallon. Florida's average price of $3.32 decreased 4 cents from last week and Georgia's average of $3.19 fell 9 cents. Tennessee's average price decreased 7 cent from last week, respectively.
