Demand Rises, But Gas Prices Stay Reasonably Low

Northwest Iowa — Iowa’s gasoline prices continue to be among the lowest in the country, according to Mark Peterson with Triple-A Iowa.

While there’s still more than a month of summer left, the summertime driving season is coming to an end with the start of school. Still, Peterson says there’s an unusual trend starting to emerge in gasoline sales.

Based on the boost in demand, simple economics dictactes we should soon see a corresponding boost in prices.
