News that a Malaysian Airliner was shot down quickly put upward pressure on the price of oil. West Texas Intermediate closed the week at $103.13 a barrel on the NYMEX on Friday - an increase of $2.30 from last week.

"Oil rose on concerns that violence could spread in response to the crash," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Gas prices are currently falling more than a half cent a day, but geopolitical tension could slow the rate of discount at the pump this week."

The national and Florida average prices for a gallon of regular unleaded are 5 cents cheaper than last week and fell for the 23rd consecutive day on Sunday. Prices in Georgia and Tennessee fell 4 cents last week. Georgia prices are on a 27-day streak of declines.  Tennessee prices fell for the 25th consecutive day.
