MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Retail gasoline prices across Alabama are on the rise due in part to heightened tensions in the Middle East and cutbacks in oil production.
According to a survey from AAA, Monday's statewide average price
for a gallon of regular is $1.54. That's a penny higher than Sunday's average.
The national average for regular is $1.67.
Other motors fuels also climbed. Midgrade averaged $1.65 and
premium cost $1.70 a gallon.
Mobile area motorists are paying the highest metro average for
regular at $1.59. The cheapest city average was found in Birmingham
at $1.50 a gallon.
