SPEAK OUT: Will Suwanee Gas Prices Hit $4 a Gallon in 2013?

Prices have been climbing lately all over the U.S. Tell us how it has affected you.

Gas prices in Suwanee and Gwinnett have been climbing lately. So the question: Will they hit the dreaded $4 mark in 2013?

Not according to AAA, the national organization that, among other things, monitors fuel prices and trends.

The organization said in a recent news release that prices are expected to peak in April, but will not hit the $4 mark.

"... The national average is not expected to exceed $4 a gallon this year for regular unleaded gasoline," said AAA spokesperson Jessica Brady in the news release.

According to Georgiagasprices.com, the lowest reported price Tuesday (February 12) was $3.37 a gallon, at three locations in the 30024 ZIP code.

That's lower than the national average of $3.58, which is up seven cents from a week ago.

The massive snowstorm in the Northeast and better than expected growth in China kept upward pressure on fuel prices, AAA said. Also, the continuing switch to summer blend fuel and refinery maintenance pushed oil and gas prices higher recently.
