"For the fifth straight week, the national average gasoline price has moved lower. Though not all states saw decreases in the last week, we nonetheless saw the nation's average price per gallon fall as we continue into the peak of fall, which is hardly a surprise," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "While prices nationally remain an average of 20 cents higher than a year ago, we'll likely continue to see improvement at the pump into a sixth week as supply outpaces demand and gasoline inventories continue their slow recovery as we soon close out an active hurricane season."
