Enjoy the super-low prices while they last.
Jeff Pelton, a GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst, said Monday, “Sadly, these incredibly low gas prices won’t be here forever, as refineries talk of production cuts with crude oil at 13-year low. Additionally, their Spring turnarounds and the changeover to summer spec gasoline also loom ominously on the horizon. The sooner the refineries can complete their maintenance and start producing gasoline again the better for drivers everywhere.”
GasBuddy.com reports that a number of local stations are as much as 31 cents below the county’s average, offering regular for as low as $1.63 to $1.69 a gallon.
