“After a quiet week previously, the national average has resumed its upward climb in the last week with average gas prices rising in nearly all states yet again. This spring certainly has brought furious price increases at faster paces than we’ve seen in past years,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “Oil posted a loss last week, likely responding in part to President Trump’s tweet aimed at oil producers and again asking OPEC to raise production, but it’s not known if the affect on the market will persist or pass into the sunset. Peak prices are likely starting to enter into view for over the next few weeks for some states — mainly in the West Coast — while the national average will likely peak somewhere between 2 to 5 weeks from now before falling. The homestretch is quickly coming into view. Perhaps the best news for motorists is they may catch a break in June as prices moderate slightly as refiners finish maintenance and boost production.”
