Easter weekend travelers and those gas prices

April 17, 2014

If you drive in South Carolina, you probably don’t need to be told that gasoline prices, since Christmas, have climbed 35.9 cents a gallon. Even though Easter is a typical stay-at-home holiday, Easter gas prices always serve as a pre-cursor to higher prices beginning May 1. The motor club AAA Carolinas says May 1 is the national deadline for refineries to start producing less-polluting summer-blend fuel. The transition pressures prices upward because supply becomes crimped. South Carolina prices have been climbing since hitting a low of $3.07 on February 10.
