Have you done much traveling this summer by car? If not, this fall might be the best time to hit the road for last minute vacations before the cooler temps and wintry weather makes its grand entrance into our lives and schedules. According to reports from earlier this week, we can expect gasoline prices to drop as school buses start rolling through neighborhoods across the country as soon as Labor Day.
The nationwide gasoline demand will decline and prices should fall after as some experts say prices could drop as much as 15 cents a gallon this soon. How are other parts of the country fairing with high gas prices? Motorists on the West Coast are paying the highest amount, with the price averaging between $2.856 a gallon and $3.544 a gallon. The cheapest gas is in Texas, and parts of the South and the Midwest.
If you’re wondering how the average prices of gasoline are impacting your pocketbooks, just note that the average retail price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline was $2.724 a gallon on this past Friday. Now according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service, that number has actually dropped about 4.6 cents in the past week, but it also still sits nearly 10 cents more than it was a year ago.
