When you head to the gas pumps this week, don't be surprised to see prices quite a bit higher than where they've been recently.
On Monday, AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report revealed that the average price for gasoline across Northeast Ohio has jumped 18 cents higher this week at $2.856 per gallon.
The data from the report reveals that both supply and demand for gasoline have increased over the past five weeks. In fact, at 9.1 million barrels-per-day, U.S. gasoline demand recorded its second highest measurement since mid-March 2020, indicating that motorists are filling up more often.
This latest demand reading is the highest spring number released by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) in two years. In fact, it is only about 3% below the same week in 2019.
The lowest average price for gas in Northeast Ohio can be found in Elyria at $2.794 per gallon. The highest is in Willard at $2.899 per gallon.
