Why gas prices will keep rising this summer


Gasoline is following crude oil sharply higher, and AAA says part of the reason is the White House decision to withdraw from the Iran deal. This compares with the national average that has increased 5.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.86/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. That means it is renewing sanctions, which include not buying Iranian oil.

The price spiked at several stations to $3.09 a gallon by late afternoon. "Plus, recent political events evolving Iran could affect the future supply, so that's driving the price up".

AAA expects drivers across Virginia and the country to continue seeing rising gas prices after the US reimposed sanctions on Iran last week, AAA Tidewater said.
