Auto News for June 19 –

A mixed bag when it comes to the latest report on gas prices with the AAA saying the national average is two cents cheaper this week at $2.90 gallon. But that is 60 cents more than motorists paid a year ago.

“If demand continues to strengthen and inventories decrease in the weeks ahead, motorists can expect gas prices (to) do a reversal and start to increase again,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA gas price expert. “AAA expects the national gas price average to range between $2.85 and $3.05 through Labor Day, likely seeing the summer’s highest prices in June.”

Another factor that will influence gas prices in the near and long-term will be outcomes from the June 22 OPEC meeting in Vienna, Austria.
