THAT GIANT CONTAINER SHIP WAS FINALLY FREED IN THE SUEZ CANAL MONDAY, UNCLOGGING A VITAL TRADE ARTERY WHICH MIGHT MEAN A SLIGHT DROP IN GASOLINE PRICES IN IOWA.

OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS, GAS PRICES HAVE BEEN MOVING HIGHER IN MOST IOWA COMMUNITIES, BUT NOT JUST BECAUSE OF THE GROUNDED SHIP.

NICK JARMUSZ OF TRIPLE-A-IOWA, SAYS WE’RE BEGINNING TO GET BACK TO NORMAL IN A LOT OF WAYS AS MORE PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO TRAVEL.

A YEAR AGO, IOWANS WERE DRIVING VERY LITTLE AS COVID-19 CLOSED DOWN MANY OFFICES AND STORES.

GASUP1 OC……. “LAST YEAR” :06

HE SAYS IT’S SIMPLE SUPPLY AND DEMAND AS MORE PEOPLE ARE NOW DRIVING.
THE GAS PRICES MAY SEEM HIGH, BUT JARMUSZ SAYS THEY’RE REALLY NOT THAT INFLATED COMPARED TO WHERE PRICES WERE -BEFORE- CORONAVIRUS ARRIVED.

GASUP2 OC……..”HUGE NUMBERS” :10

THE STATEWIDE AVERAGE PRICE FOR GAS IS TWO-76 A GALLON.

A YEAR AGO, IOWA’S AVERAGE PRICE WAS A DOLLAR-80.
