May 21, 2013 | Weekly Fuel Market Update
The average U.S. price of a gallon of gas jumped 11 cents over the past two weeks, while diesel leveled out during the same period. Lower demand at this time of year is causing oil and refined products to trade higher than normal. Still, the Southwest is seeing some of the lowest prices in the country.
Gas prices jumped at the end of last week following the higher prices in the Group 3 Spot Market which includes New Mexico and parts of the Midwest. The average price of regular gas in Albuquerque is $3.60, which is $0.02 lower than the national average of $3.62. (Click here to learn more about Spot Markets and spot prices.)
