Gas Prices Dip 1 Cent In Area

Gas prices in Jamestown are 1 cent lower this week at $3.358, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report. By comparison, the average price during the week of Sept. 28, 2020, was $2.35. The national average dropped just a penny on the week to $3.18 after matching a seven-year-high in the prior week. The big culprit keeping pump prices high is the price of crude oil, which is above $73 per barrel. This time of year, consumers typically see some relief at the pump. However, with approximately 16% of crude production in the Gulf of Mexico still shut down because of Hurricanes Ida and Nicholas and the concerns about what higher COVID cases could do to the economy, oil prices remain elevated. AHh crude prices (above $72 per barrel) will contribute to gasoline prices likely remaining elevated this fall.
