How gas prices changed in Huntington last week |
Oil prices fell this week as the United States and its international partners moved to meet global oil demand.
Stacker compiled gas price statistics in the Huntington, WV metro area using data from AAA. Gas prices are current as of March 31. State gasoline tax data is from world population review. Three states—Connecticut, Georgia, and Maryland—temporarily suspended gasoline taxes to defray consumer costs while prices rise.
The Biden administration announced on March 31 that it would order the release of a 1 million barrels of oil every day for six months of the country’s strategic oil supply to falling gas prices.
In an effort to incentivize national oil companies to increase production, the White House called on Congress to approve the “use-it-or-lose-it” fee. Companies on leased wells or public lands that have not been used for production for years will be forced to pay fees under the proposed policy.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies met on March 31 and confirmed a 432,000 barrels per day increase in oil production from May.
