Demand for gas has dropped, however, pump prices have increased moderately, signaling that expensive crude oil prices are driving the price. Adrienne Woodland a spokesperson for AAA - The Auto Club Group tells FOX 17,

"An increase in crude utilization and increasing crude prices have attributed to higher pump prices. It's likely that drivers will see this trend continue through the month of February."
