Gas prices fall again this week

Gas prices fall again this week

Tampa, FL -- Average retail gasoline prices in Tampa fell by 3.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.47/g yesterday.

This compares with the national average that decreased by 1.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.58/g, according to gasoline price website TampaGasPrices.com.

"Although crude oil ended another volatile week on the upswing, rising from $79 to settle just above $82 per barrel at Friday's close, overall demand for gasoline is not likely to increase any time soon and we should not be surprised to see crude oil slip to the mid-70s this week as the price at the pump edges lower too," Gregg Laskoski, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst said in a release.
