Gas Prices Highest Ever for Month of February

February 27, 2013

Although the Energy Information Administration forecasts 2013 gas prices would not surpass those of 2012, motorists are paying more for a gallon of gas than they ever have for the month of February, that’s according AAA South.

February’s current national monthly average is $3.63, 8 cents more than last year’s monthly average of $3.55.

Gas prices are expected to increase throughout the end of the month and continue the trend in March.

This could cause some states averages in the Southeast to reach $4 a gallon, although some metro markets in the region have already reported prices well above $4.

The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.78, 7 cents more than last week. Georgia’s average of $3.77 rose 13 cents, respectively.
