Gas prices drop in Quincy; AAA predicts summer blend could cause spike

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

According to AAA, gas prices fell in March for the first time in ten years.

The national price of gas is sitting at $3.58 a gallon. Quincy prices are just below that at $3.54 a gallon.

However, local experts say as gas stations switch over to the more expensive summer grade of fuel and the demand goes up as more people drive during the summer, that prices could go back up.

And that has motorists worried.

"If it goes up anymore, I'm going to go back to walking because I can't keep affording to put gas in every couple of days," said Lonzelle Thomas.

"Man van eats a lot of gas and I can't afford it it's just ridiculous really, It needs to go down a little bit," said Marty Vahle.

AAA predicts that the national average this spring should remain below last year's price levels.
