National average gas prices have continued to edge lower this week, following overall crude oil prices, which have fallen in recent weeks as a result of industry concerns about lower demand, according to a Bloomberg News report.
Southeastern states are seeing the lowest prices, in general, with Northeastern and Western states seeing among the highest prices, according to AAA.
The trend of lowering prices looks set to continue as winter arrives: “With cooler weather comes cooler gasoline prices, and as we inch closer to the Thanksgiving holiday, prices will continue to fall virtually coast to coast,” Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said in a statement this week.
