Brace yourself because the experts at GasBuddy are saying we can expect the national average to rise as much as $1 per gallon from a low in January to a possible peak in May. Economic jitters however, could weigh heavily on where gas prices go in 2019.
“While the bargain basement gas prices we’ve been seeing in areas across the country have been terrific and most welcomed, the party at the pump will likely wrap up in the next month or two, and prices will begin to rally as OPEC production cuts and a strong U.S. economy push gas prices back up. While the national average failed to hit $3 last year, we have an even stronger possibility of seeing that ugly possibility, which would push prices in some places from $1.99 today to over $3 this spring which would be an impressive and shocking turnaround in just a few months,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.
Like many things, we'll just enjoy it while we can.
