Report: Warm fall weather causing demand and price increase at the pump


A state road club agency announced Monday recent figures from the Energy Information Administration that shows the demand for gasoline from consumers is the highest since 2006.

AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesperson Tammy Arnette said in a report that demand has resulted in a short-term hike in gas prices nationwide and a tightening of supply levels across the U.S. She said the unseasonably warm weather has caused drivers to get outdoors more and pull up to the pump.

However, Tennessee and Virginia remain in the top ten of least expensive markets to purchase regular unleaded at $2.28 per gallon on average, the data showed.
