“Uncertainty over Russia’s intentions toward Ukraine is contributing to higher crude oil prices, which are closing in on $90 per barrel,” says Mary Maguire, Director of Public/Government Affairs, in a press release. “Russia is a member of OPEC+, and any sanctions based on their actions toward Ukraine may cause it to withhold crude oil from the global market. Higher oil prices will lead to higher pump prices for drivers.”
AAA Northeast’s January 31 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 3 cents higher than last week ($3.33), averaging $3.36 a gallon.
