AAA Northeast’s July 27th survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be $2.18, down a penny from last week ($2.19). Today’s national average price is one cent more than a month ago ($2.17), and 56 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.74).
“As COVID-19 case numbers surpass 4 million, demand for gasoline is weakening across the country,” said Robert Sinclair Jr., Manager of Media Relations for AAA Northeast. “The latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) demand reading measures at 8.5 million barrels per day, which is about 11% less than a year ago. Gas prices are likely to fluctuate throughout the rest of the summer due to COVID-19 concerns.”
