Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, said it was a mixed bag for gas prices over the last week, even as oil prices remained relatively low.

“California continued to lead the nation as prices skyrocketed, but appear to have peaked for now, while the Great Lakes states also saw prices march higher due to a price cycle,” DeHaan said.

“Other states saw some downward movement, but we appear ripe for a week that features more price decreases than increases, especially for hard-hit California.”
