Gas Prices Rise 3.5 Cents In Chattanooga

Look for already-high gas prices to spike following Friday's air strikes against Syria by the United States and its allies.

Metro Detroit's average gas price is about $2.77 - about eight cents more than last week's average.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices on Sunday were 32.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 20.7 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

"Motorists should expect a 15 cent increase at the pump in the short term", said Mark Jenkins, spokesman at AAA in Tampa.

The average cost for a gallon of regular unleaded across Florida on Monday was $2.63, with the national average at $2.71. But that's 26 cents higher than past year and would be the highest average summer price in the US since 2014.

Gas prices continue to rise as prices went up 6 cents per gallon last week on Long Island, averaging $2.80 per gallon according to Gas Buddy, which tracks gas prices nationwide.

The most expensive were the Crestview-Fort Walton Beach ($2.80), Pensacola ($2.77) and West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.76) regions.

The tension in the Middle East and fears of US sanctions against Syria's sponsors - Russian Federation and Iran - have prompted a tightening of global crude oil supplies. Syria has not exported oil since civil war broke out in 2011, but it receives fuel deliveries from Iran. The OPEC and non-OPEC production cut agreement is eliminating the global oil supply glut that led to lower prices in recent years, AAA said.

The auto club, based out of Dearborn, announced the average price of gas in MI last week was about $2.78, compared to about $2.68 last week. "Refinery maintenance has gone well thus far, and gasoline supply has continued to push higher as more refiners conclude their work".

That means, "the reasons gas prices rise will shrink", DeHaan said.
