Output Exceeds Demand
Gas prices slightly fell this week as growing fuel supplies exceed the demand.
According to the AAA Fuel Gauge Survey, the national average price of regular gas is $2.17 a gallon, which is a penny less than last week’s average gas price and two cents less than that of two weeks ago.
Premium gas average gas price is $2.79 a gallon, and $2.38 a gallon for diesel fuel, which is the same as last week.
Hurricane Delta and the temporary downtime of Colonial Pipeline Line 1 due to power loss barely made any difference with the gas prices. In fact, not only did it not rice, the gas price actually went down.
Typically, hurricane season would have caused gas prices to spike. Low U.S. gasoline demand may have helped contain gas price impact locally and regionally.
