Louisiana Gas Prices Continue To Climb

While most of Acadiana is on spring break this week now would be a good time to start planning for summertime travel. Can you believe that school will be dismissed in approximately six weeks?

For many of us, this means loading up the family car and making a short drive to the beach or a theme park. How much will it cost to make the trip?

Gas prices have already begun their seasonal rise. This increase is attributed by industry sources to the change from winter gas to summer gas. If the suppliers are telling the truth and there is no major political upheaval or tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico we should see those prices level off and then actually drop by the time school is dismissed for summer.

Right now gas prices are about as high as they were in the middle of last July according to fuel analyst Don Redmon,

“We’re looking at $3.50 a gallon, potentially could go higher, anywhere between a nickel and ten cents until after the holidays,” 

Redmon’s comments were reported to the Louisiana Radio Network. He went on to say the reason for the higher prices now is simply because of supply and demand. As soon as refineries complete the change from winter to summer blends, the prices should begin to level out and even go down.
