Gas prices will surge this summer | Dayton Daily News

Drivers, take heed: Gas prices are expected to head up for the warm-weather driving season.

Pushed up by higher crude prices and lower inventory, the U.S. Energy Information Administration expects the retail price of regular-grade gasoline will average $2.74 per gallon this summer, up from an average of $2.41 a gallon last summer.

The EIA blamed the increase on crude oil prices, which are expected to average $12 per barrel higher than last summer.

“The forecast attributes this increase, in large part, to higher Brent crude-oil prices, which are reaching average spot prices not approached since 2014,” Linda Capuano, administrator of the EIA, said in a release.

In Dayton early Thursday, gas prices ranged from $2.69 a gallon at the Sunoco at 912 Wayne Ave. in Dayton to $2.45 at the Big Daddy’s, 1627 E. Third St., also Dayton. They were even lower at some spots.
