Summer Gas Prices Were 3rd Highest on Record

Sept. 9, 2013

Gas prices this summer were the third highest on record, behind 2008 and 2011.

Oil prices remain high due to tensions in the Middle East and North Africa.

Retail gas prices haven't moved too much higher, likely because of less demand and comfortable gasoline supplies.

AAA says a calm month in terms of weather and activity in the Middle East should keep prices low.

The average in Charlottesville is $3.30 per gallon, almost 20 cents less than the national average.
