Wholesale prices fall even faster, suggesting The prices at the pump should continue to fall.
"Almost every part of the country is likely to see a decline by the end of next week," said Tom Kloza, head of energy analysis for the Oil Price Information Service.
"Gas prices should continue to fall as we move through the summer," Kloza said. "It is very likely that we will pay less than $ 2.50 in the next few months."
The national average price is likely to fall even further, according to Kloza, to $ 2.25 a gallon over the year. As soon as the summer driving season ends, the demand for gasoline decreases, which lowers prices. So you have to do without the more expensive gasoline mixture, which is needed in the summer months to combat smog.
A national average of $ 2.25 per gallon would probably mean that nearly half of the country's gas stations are selling regular gasoline for less than $ 2 a gallon, Kloza said.
