“Drivers are now benefiting from gas prices that are $1.11 less than their peak in mid-June,” AAA spokesman Andrew Gross stated. “But now we need to keep an eye on the weather as hurricane season arrives. These storms can affect prices by disrupting oil production in the Gulf of Mexico and impacting large coastal refineries.”
AAA also notes that while the national average of $3.90 on August 22nd has declined 51 cents from a month ago, it is still “74 cents more than a year ago.”
Despite the significantly higher gas prices from a year ago, the Biden Administration is trying to spin the prices coming down from all time highs as a win. Never mind the fact your gas prices are still higher than they were a year ago and even higher than in 2020.
The White House posted to Facebook earlier this month, “The current drop in gas prices is the fastest decline in over a decade – lowering everyday costs for American families.”
What do you make of Joe Mixon’s prediction? Do you think gas prices will go up to $10?
