Knoxville, TN – As the popular saying goes: The sixth time is the charm.
Tampa, FL – Mounting concerns about the increase in global COVID-19 Coronavirus cases and the reinstatement of lockdown policies in some countries has driven crude oil prices down to the lowest closing price – $35.00/bbl – since June. In comparison, last year at this time crude was pricing at about $20.00/bbl more expensive.
As crude prices decreased last week, the United States saw fluctuation in gasoline demand and supply.
Tampa, FL – Gasoline demand, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), back tracked for the week ending October 9th, 2020 decreasing from 8.90 million b/d to 8.58 million b/d.
Lower demand, even as total domestic stocks decreased by 1.6 million bbl to 225.1 million bbl and imports fell to their lowest rate since September 18th, has contributed to pump price decreases for the majority of the country.
All Eyes on Tropical Storms
Tampa, FL – At $2.18, the national gas price average increased by one cent on the week according to AAA. That is the same price as a month ago and 41 cents cheaper than a year ago.
The minimal change reflects the slow movement at pumps across the country on the week. The vast majority of states (30) saw pump prices fluctuate by a penny, if at all.
Tampa, FL – The national gas price average held steady on the week at $2.19 as 1/3 of states saw gas prices decrease and only 10 states saw gas prices increase by two to four cents.
State averages saw minimal fluctuation as demand roughly held steady over the last four weeks.
“During the last month, demand has averaged about 8.6 million b/d while, gasoline stocks have steadily declined,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
Tampa, FL – The national gas price average increased just one cent to $2.18 on the week despite a dip in United States demand for gasoline and gasoline stocks increasing by 1 million bbl.
The slight drop in demand – 47,000 b/d – amid the increase in stocks comes as many states report increases in COVID-19 Coronavirus cases, potentially causing Americans to reconsider outings.
Tampa, FL – The national gas price average is $1.97, just one penny more expensive than last week. Part of the incremental jump can be attributed to increases in gasoline demand, which saw a 7% week-over-week increase.
However, demand is still down nearly 25% compared to last year, according to the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) latest reports.
Tampa, FL – At $2.57, AAA says the national gas price average is a penny cheaper on the week. The majority of states saw minimal movement at the pump in the last week, several saw decreases of up to four cents while fewer than a dozen states saw gas prices increase.
“Since the end of October, gasoline demand has mostly decreased as gasoline stocks have mostly increased, paving the way for cheaper gas prices,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.
