Trend Analysis:

Immediately following the Thanksgiving holiday, the national average for a gallon of gas continues to fall. Since last week, pump prices have decreased five cents to $3.25.

Over the last two months, the national average has either fallen or remained flat with eleven states now having averages below $3 per gallon.

Today’s national average is 26 cents less than a month ago and 30 cents less than a year ago.

At the close of Wednesday’s formal trading session, West Texas Intermediate decreased by $1.56 to settle at $75.54.

Oil prices fell due to the perceived easing of geopolitical tensions in the Middle East after the release of some hostages in Gaza. This comes ahead of Thursday’s OPEC+ meeting to decide on production cuts for 2024.
