The fall in gasoline prices accelerated last week after another week of significant oil and gasoline supply figures, “according to the AAA (the Association of American Motorists).
Mark Jenkins, spokesman for the AAA, said the increase in the US crude inventory reached a new figure in 2019, which forced a drop in oil prices to the lowest levels not seen since January. “
According to the projections of the AAA, a vigorous supply of oil will keep gasoline prices low during the summer. The association believes that this week there could be a drop of five cents in the average price of the state.
This means 11 cents less than on Memorial Day, and 30 cents less than the highest price that, so far, has been given in 2019, which was established last April.
In the Sunshine State, drivers were paying 9 cents less than last week, 17 cents less than in May and 26 cents less than a year ago, around this time. The price of a barrel of oil is $ 12.50 cheaper than in 2018.
The price of crude closed at $ 52.51, the barrel last week
