Trend Analysis:
Crude oil prices decreased last week to the lowest closing price – $35/barrel – since June. By comparison, last year at this time, crude was pricing at about $20/barrel more expensive. Domestic crude prices decreased following market concern about increasing coronavirus infections worldwide, which could lower crude demand.

As crude prices decreased, the national average price for gasoline pushed four cents cheaper to $2.12, and every state except South Dakota (+1 cent) saw gas prices hold steady or decrease. The average at the start of November hasn’t been this cheap since 2004, and if crude oil continues to push cheaper, the national average could drop below $2/gallon before the end of the year.

Across the country, state gas price averages are cheaper on the month and the week. Today, motorists can find gas for $2/gallon or less at 52% of gas stations.

We paid $2.59 We paid $1.87 in west Virginia on our return to Florida we paid $1.63 in South Carolina and paid $1.92 in Florida when we got back to our Florida house.Why do the REPUBLICANs of Warren accept this continual OVER charge for Gas in Pennsylvania?
