Recently, gas prices dropped lower than they had in years to $1.30 per gallon, but now prices are going back up to around $2.00 a gallon. Everyone has been loving all of this cheap gas, but with all of the snow melting and the sun coming back out, the demand for gas is getting higher and higher. Representatives from the Oil Price Information Service are even saying that prices will soon be above the $2.00 mark. Crude oil prices have also been rising since March 15.¬†“Crude oil rallied by $14 a barrel and that works out to be 33 cents per gallon,” Tom Kloza, an analyst for the Oil Price Information Service, said. “We’re the last region to switch to reformulated gas, so we haven’t see the effects of that.” Kloza hopes that gas raises above the $2.00 mark and then¬†settles back down.
