Evaluating the Impact of Gov Shutdown

Thursday, October 10, 2013
WASHINGTON D.C. - U.S. and global markets are working to evaluate the impact of the federal government shutdown and renewed U.S. Debt ceiling concerns, while retail gas prices continue to march steadily lower. This week’s average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $3.35 per gallon. This price is four cents less expensive than one week ago, 22 cents less than one month ago and 47 cents less than the same day last year. AAA expects that retail prices will continue lower in the coming months, as sufficient supplies, flat demand and cheaper winter-blend gasoline mean motorists are likely to pay less to fill their tanks.
