The national average price of gas hit some road bumps over the last week after starting to decline early in the week.
The second half saw the national average rise as gas prices in the Corn Belt started spiking, pulling the average price in the US along with it, according to Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.
“And with most of the nation switching back to cheaper winter gasoline on Saturday, we should see more price decreases for most the nation in the weeks ahead, barring further refinery disruptions and hurricane season,” De Haan. “Fall tends to bring falling gas prices, and I’m hoping this year won’t be any different.”
