The impact of COVID-19 continues to factor into the price at the pump...
Prices have been trending downward, which is good news for motorists... Factors such as the continuing impact of COVID and the willingness of OPEC nations to increase oil production will play a role in what prices we see at the pumps throughout the first quarter of the year. ~ Mary Maguire, Director of Public/Government Affairs.
