WEST CENTRAL GAS PRICES INCREASE BY ALMOST 6 CENTS PDF Print
Thursday, 13 March 2014 07:21

West Central Kentucky gas prices increased almost six cents to $3.44 a gallon this week, according to AAA East Central.

Today’s national average price at the pump is $3.49 per gallon. This price is three cents more expensive than one week ago and 20 cents more than one month ago; however national prices are still 21 cents per gallon less than the same date last year.

While pump prices are creeping higher, AAA expects prices to peak between $3.55 and $3.75 per gallon over the next month due to seasonal refinery maintenance and the May 1 required switchover for producing summer-blend gasoline. Events such as unplanned domestic refinery maintenance or further escalation of geopolitical tensions with Russia could cause prices to exceed this predication.

Locally, Bowling Green is at an average of $3.46 and Elizabethtown is at $3.41.
