“Consumers should see the usual autumn relief at the pump,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. “But factor in that approximately 16% of crude production in the Gulf of Mexico is still shut down because of Hurricanes Ida and Nicholas and the concerns about what higher COVID cases could do to the economy, and this uncertainty is helping to keep oil prices elevated.”
AAA Northeast’s September 27 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to 1 cent lower than last week ($3.19), averaging $3.18 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 4 cents higher than a month ago ($3.14), and $1.00 higher than this day last year ($2.18).
