Summer is still months away, but summer blend fuel is already available at the pumps.
Summer blend isn’t the latest coffee concoction from Starbucks. It’s a type of fuel blend that’s going to cost customers 25 to 35 cents more per gallon more at the pump, and many customers are bracing themselves for a summer fuel spike.
It’s 53 degrees here in New York city, but drivers at this Mobil gas station are already feeling the heat. Summer blend gasoline was switched into gas pumps nationally in mid-March and over the past 2 weeks gas prices have risen 23 cents to $3.69 a gallon.
