Gas prices expected to dip in new year

Gas prices jump 15 cents at Mobil Guam, 76

Average retail gasoline prices in Louisiana have risen 0.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.26/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 2,436 gas outlets in Louisiana.

Gwinnett County prices, much like the state average, have not shown much movement.

In Rhode Island, gas is four cents above the national average of $2.49, while gas prices are a penny less than the national average in MA. The lowest was in Tucson, Arizona, at $2.10 a gallon.

Oil has surpassed $62 a barrel for the first time since December 2013 due to oil supply tightening up.

Gas prices were up across the Northeast, AAA said.

The first week of the new year is historically strong for oil prices, AAA said. That price point is then lowered later in the year as a result of low demand. "Unfortunately, springtime is a springboard for prices at the pump, and we may see a 40 to 50 cent jump by the summer".

"I must caution motorists, however, that any downturn would likely be short-lived as gas prices typically begin moving higher after the sweetness of Valentine's Day has worn off as refiners begin maintenance and the long road to summer gasoline begins", DeHaan said.

Gas prices are on the rise in Rhode Island and MA after Thursday's storm.
