Guam gasoline prices see another uptick

PUMP PRICES: Gasoline prices at Mobil pumps along Route 8 in Maite show increases from last month. Regular grade went back up to $4.75 a gallon while premium gasoline went rose to $5.15. David Castro/The Guam Daily Post

Last month's 12-cent-a-gallon price drop didn't last.

On Friday, Mobil increased the price of regular-grade gasoline by 10 cents to $4.75 a gallon. Shell and 76-branded service stations have historically mirrored their competitors' prices.

For vehicle owners who want no less than premium grade, each gallon will set them back an additional 10 cents at $5.15 a gallon.

Diesel costs 15 cents more at $5 a gallon.

Guam saw its price of gasoline peak this year at $4.77 per gallon of regular-grade fuel — the highest level Guam has seen in more than a year – in the first few days of August before retreating by 12 cents a gallon two weeks later.

The White House last month called on the major oil-producing countries under the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to boost production as gasoline prices soared.

Guam motorists pay nearly $1.60 more per gallon of gasoline compared to the average stateside. Stateside prices were $3.165 a gallon, on average, as of Sept. 13, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

In April 2020, as the island was in full shutdown, gas prices for Guam consumers dropped to $2.98 for a gallon of regular-grade gasoline. It was mostly uphill from there.
