Gas Prices Fluctuate Due To Increasing Inventory

Aug. 25, 2017

According to AAA, the average gasoline price for the nation was $2.33 as of August 21. In the Midwest the prices are down a bit compared to a week prior, where the Northwest is seeing an increase. Overall, growth in production and record-breaking high refinery runs, push the relatively high inventories for gasoline even higher. It's currently higher than the previous five year average.
