Gas prices leveling, may drop, AAA says

KINGMAN - After more than two months of steady increases, fuel prices have leveled off across the state, according to AAA Arizona.

"After climbing for 45 consecutive days, Arizona drivers are finally beginning to feel some welcomed relief," said Linda Gorman, AAA Arizona's director of communications and public affairs, in an email. "With spot gasoline prices dropping across the country, it is likely that retail prices will continue to drop in the coming days."

In the Kingman area, prices at the pump vary wildly, ranging from a low of $3.55 for a gallon of regular unleaded to nearly $3.90.

Tucson and Scottsdale were home to the least and most expensive fuel in the state, respectively. A gallon of unleaded regular in Tucson was $3.55, while the price was about $3.88 in Scottsdale.

Statewide, the average of $3.75 a gallon is about 1 cent higher than last week's average and nearly 45 cents more than one month ago, according to AAA. Last year, the statewide average was $3.82. Nationwide, the $3.72 per gallon price is up more than 6 cents from last week.

if they build the keystone pipeline through the middle of america all the way from canada to the gulf, then middle americans can watch as that canadian oil goes by and is exported to china.

gas prices on the east coast were down to just over $2.00 a gallon six months ago!

Well, gas price may drop. Does it, or does it not?
I may not believe that, or maybe I* do.
A drop in Gas price plays against O's politic. Otherwise we would have already the Key Stone pipeline and many other successful in Country drilling operation going. Oil is nor scarce. Good down to earth of american leadership is.

The key word here is gas prices MAY drop, and lets be sure and add slowly. They sure didn't rise slowly!! The only thing that rises slowly is wages!!
With the Memorial day holiday and summer break coming there is very little chance of relief in sight. The oil companies have to get their billions. To bad they won't raise the prices of alcohol,then they could make a mint for Washington. There not going to do that though as it effects to many of the lushes in the white house. So lets stick it to the working guy and empty his pockets. There is no apparent reason for this other than GREED.
