AAA: New Mexico gasoline costs have hit a 7-year excessive

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – New Mexico has hit a seven-year high for gas prices, according to the AAA. The average price per gallon is currently $ 3.24. That’s almost $ 0.10 more than last week and a whole dollar more than this time last year.

“At this point, where gas prices would normally fall, they go up,” said Daniel Armbruster, AAA spokesman in New Mexico and Texas.

He attributed the rise in gas prices to an increase in crude oil prices, supply bottlenecks and growing gas demand.

“Of course there are more people who drive, who travel, who return to the office, so more people who use gas,” he said.

Now many are wondering when prices will fall again.
