Summer gas prices are high in Utah
Gas prices in Utah have been high this summer, but a report from AAA predicts that it might level out as summer peak is reached. Last week, the state average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was $3.19, the seventh-highest in the country. The national average in June was $2.89 compared to Utah's $3.19. Michael Blasky, spokesperson for AAA Utah, said in the report that the prices are driven by a strong demand for gasoline during the busy summer season.
