“Motorists across many areas of the country have seen gas prices inching down for another week, while some states have moved higher. We’ve seen some refinery challenges in pockets of the country, while others are starting the transition to summer gasoline, weighing on prices. For diesel, the outlook remains bright with prices continuing to fall, ” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Oil prices have softened over the last week, helping to limit any upside at the pump, with strong economic data leading to concern that the Fed will continue to use interest rates to slow the economy. This could weaken demand as we head into the peak summer driving season. For diesel, the great news is that the most common price in the U.S. for diesel is now $3.99 per gallon, with average prices continuing to drop. In the next couple of weeks, diesel will finally flip to deflationary compared to a year ago, which is excellent news for the economy.”

As of Monday, the national average price of gasoline, which is $3.37 a gallon, has remained constant over the past week.

According to GasBuddy statistics culled from more than 11 million weekly price reports spanning more than 150,000 gas stations throughout the nation, the national average is down 2.7 cents per gallon from a month ago and is 14.5 cents per gallon lower than it was a year ago.
