Gas prices on the rise around Buffalo, climbing slightly from last week

Gas prices on the rise around Buffalo, climbing slightly from last week

As of this writing, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in SC is $2.06 according to AAA and $2.04 according to GasBuddy.

Two refineries recently shut down in Texas, which will push wholesale prices higher, AAA said.

The states with the cheapest average gasoline prices are: SC ($2.05), Alabama ($2.08), MS ($2.08), Oklahoma ($2.10), Missouri ($2.10), Arkansas ($2.10), Tennessee ($2.12), Texas ($2.14), Louisiana ($2.14) and Virginia ($2.16). CT lawmakers and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy are taking heat from motorists for considering a plan that raises the state's gasoline tax by three cents when prices at the pumps are creeping toward $5 a gallon. That means they wind up paying a higher percentage of their income on fuel than residents of most other states, even though South Carolina's gas prices are typically among the lowest in the country.

Locally, some refinery issues failed to have a major impact on fuel prices, at least so far. But, with college students returning to school, university towns had some of the most expensive gas in Florida with the Tallahassee and Gainesville markets both seeing an average of $2.30 per gallon.

War Games to Begin as US, South Korea Brace for North's Fury
Last year, the North fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) in the East Sea two days after the opening of UFG. North and South Korea are technically still at war after the 1950-1953 Korean War ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

"AAA discourages motorists from watching the solar eclipse while driving", Jenkins said. "To help prevent trouble, reduce your speed and keep additional space between you and other vehicles.The better option is to find a safe place to park, and then observe the eclipse".

In spite of summer's end drawing closer, the demand for gas has yet to drop off.

Auglaize County experienced the second-largest decrease, with the average gas price falling 10 cents. This compares with the national average, which has fallen 2.4 cents in the last week to $2.32.
