Gas prices are around 50 cents higher this June than they were last year and that is having an impact on demand.

Triple-A Iowa’s Rose White says it is unusual to see the amount of gas burned by motorists dropping.

OC….SINCE 2015 :17

The drop in demand is only one of the factors that has led to a slight decrease in gas prices this week.

OC….FEW WEEKS :08

She says gas prices will usually drop from two to four cents a gallon with each one dollar drop in the price of oil, but gas prices here haven’t dropped down to their levels seen last year.

OC….26 A GALLON :16

Summer driving often leads to an increase in driving and an increase in demand for gasoline, but White says drivers are making adjustments with the high fuel costs.

OC….E-85 BLEND :11

The E-85 blend is cheaper than the other blends of gas.

South Carolina is the state with the cheapest gas — coming in at two dollars, 58 cents a gallon.

California has the highest average price at three dollars, 17 cents a gallon.
