Get ready for gas prices to rise this month.Gas prices could rise 10 cents a gallon this month, AAA said Tuesday.

 

Gasoline prices did not increase in February like they have for the last 10 years due to low oil prices  and record supplies. Prices decreased in February,  but they’re expected to increase  in March, AAA said Tuesday.

“Gas prices rise in March because more Americans are beginning to take spring road trips. This creates increased demand for gasoline at a time when refineries are putting-out less fuel, due to seasonal maintenance. Demand is now beginning to increase, as are prices at the pump. However, prices are unlikely to surge as supplies remain abundant,” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said.

Last year, gas prices rose 2 cents nationwide in March and 9 cents in Florida.
