Gas Prices Hold Relatively Steady This Week

Prices at the pump held relatively steady this week. "The Oregon statewide average ticks up a penny to $4.68 and the national average is holding steady at $4.10 a gallon," says AAA Oregon's Marie Dodds.

She says Oregon drivers can expect gas prices to fluctuate quite a bit in the weeks to come, "None of us know how this situation in Ukraine is going to unfold and so the global markets react on a daily, if not hourly, basis."

Crude oil shot back up above $100 a barrel this week, putting upward pressure on prices at the pump, "At the same time, we’ve seen our gas prices fall just a little bit from the record highs we had in March," says Dodds, "And just that little bit of a drop has probably spurred people on to consume more gasoline." She expects that increase in demand will also push prices higher.
