“Gas prices have started to fall as expected as oil prices have fallen slightly since Hurricane Laura moved on and as seasonal challenges come into view,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “We’ll likely see additional downward movement in the weeks ahead with gasoline demand set to decline as we move into the fall months and as COVID-19 restrictions keep demand from rallying. It’s entirely possible we could see the national average fall under $2 per gallon by the end of the year without a major improvement in the situation.”
