What the experts say
Patrick De Haan, Head of Petroleum Analysis at GasBuddy: “We have seen the national average gasoline price rise again after refinery closures due to cold weather pushed up the wholesale price of gasoline. Additionally, recent GDP data and new attacks in the Red Sea have pushed oil prices to an all-time high.” It has been around since November, and while prices have risen and may continue to rise slowly, I think the biggest increases will be seen a few weeks ago as we enter mid-February, and continue into April or May, when the national average could rise from 35 to 85 cents per gallon. 1. Other issues and tensions can complicate how quickly or how high prices rise, so while the rise is not fully charted, it may deviate from our expectations.
