AAA: Gas Demand May Have Reached Its Peak

August 4, 2013

Auto club AAA is reporting gas stations are showing lower demand this week, possibly signaling the peak of summer gasoline demand.

The national average of gasoline is $3.62 per gallon. Charlottesville's average is a bit lower at $3.35 per gallon.

Decreased demand doesn't mean lower prices. AAA reports prices may go up in August due to the potential for late-summer hurricanes and refinery problems.
