Relief at the Pump Soon to Come

MEDFORD, Ore. — Gas prices have been consistently rising daily for more than a month now, but AAA says relief at the pump is coming. After the worst February on record, AAA is predicting gas prices will begin to drop in the weeks ahead.

Officials say the reason for the peak in prices at the gas stations is because several refineries are upgrading equipment. This is causing production to slow down and less production leads to increased prices for the time being.

AAA says that work should be completed in the coming weeks and falling gas prices are expected to follow.
