Fuel Fundamentals - October 2017

Meanwhile, oil prices gained almost a dollar last week after the EIA reported a 5.7 million barrel decline in oil supply and a 1 million barrel drop in production. 

“Motorists should expect another round of discounts at the pump this week,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Gasoline futures and wholesale prices gained some strength last week, but not enough to stop the pump price plunge. Retail prices remain about 5-10 cents higher than where they should be, based on current fundamentals.”
