  • AAA Michigan: Gas prices drop 15 cents, highest in UP

At $2.62, today's national gas price average is the cheapest in 14 days and five cents less than last week. Natural gas fell 5 cents to $3.02 per 1,000 cubic feet. "However, motorists should see gas prices decline through the end of the month, and possibly reach the lowest point of the year in Q4", which would be sometime from October to December. That spike seems to have since curbed as refineries begin resuming operations, according to Lloyd Albert, senior vice president of public and government affairs for AAA Northeast.

Gas prices are coming down, but it could take a while to see pre-Hurricane Harvey prices. Meanwhile, the highest gas prices can be found in: Hawaii ($3.34), California ($3.20), Alaska ($3.05), Washington ($3.03), Nevada ($2.91), OR ($2.90), Pennsylvania ($2.86), CT ($2.86), NY ($2.79) and Rhode Island ($2.73). "Combined with strong summer travel demand on the West Coast, it means motorists in Nevada are seeing the highest gas prices in two years".

"As we welcome back winter gasoline across most of the country, gasoline production has continued to recover after Harvey, leading much of the country to enjoy falling gasoline prices along with fall weather", DeHaan said in a report today.

Wholesale gasoline rose 3 cents to $1.66 a gallon.

Schumer on Sunday asked the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to watch for gasoline price gouging, which he said could contribute to high gasoline prices in his state after Harvey and Irma.

You'll save a few pennies the next time you gas up in Georgia, but still shell out much more than a year ago. Alaska, California, Hawaii, Montana and Utah saw average prices rise slightly, but should see relief in the weeks ahead.

According to the latest statistics from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, both hurricanes led to higher than average gas prices over the last couple of weeks.
