Take all of your pending road trips now, because the fuel price honeymoon is over.
Gas prices dropped significantly in mid-Oct. – to a low of $1.72 per gallon in Wichita on Jan. 11 – are expected to peak around $2.70 per gallon soon, according to predictions from GasBuddy.
Throughout February, wholesale gasoline prices across the country increased, on average, 54 cents per gallon, according to GasBuddy.
In Wichita on Friday, gas was averaging about $2.28 per gallon, said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy.
Gas increases from cheaper “winter blend” to “summer blend”, which is more costly to produce.
Thornbrugh said, “They’re going to have to get (oil) from somebody.”
Gas prices first fell to “bargain basement prices” last autumn DeHaan said.
