Oil prices increase for a second week

Oil prices increase for a second week

Tampa, FL -- Oil prices increased for the second week in a row, keeping a barrel of oil above $80 after the Group-20 (G-20) and European leaders began discussion to draft a plan to resolve the European debt crisis, according to a AAA Club South release. The new plan's completion date is set for the last week of October, with a review by the G-20 scheduled for the first of November. 

The market reacted to talks of the plan and received additional upward momentum from a Commerce Department report that showed U.S. retail sales increased 1.1 percent last month. 

Crude oil settled Friday at $86.80 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange—$3.22 more than the week prior.

Expect gas prices to fall further

Expect gas prices to fall further

Tampa, FL -- AAA Club South reports that oil prices remain relatively unchanged this week as economic news remains bleak in the U.S. and abroad. 

Prices fell further after reports showed China’s manufacturing index dropped for a third month in a row, while European retail sales declined last month and U.S. consumer spending continues to slow. Fuel demand continues to falter as weak economies cause consumers to cut back on spending and travel.

Crude oil settled Friday at $79.20 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange—65 cents less than the week prior, according to AAA.
