The national average for a gallon of regular gas fell 5 cents in the past week to $2.62, according to AAA. In Ft. Wayne, gas is down 18 cents to $2.40.

From Aug. 29 to September 5, Pittsburgh-area pump prices increased 24 cents - the largest weekly spike in the region recorded since GasBuddy began keeping detailed data in 2007.

According to the U.S. Energy Department, six Gulf Coast refineries are operating at reduced rates, which is one more refinery than last week.

Gas prices could fall even farther this week, DeHaan said.

Last week, gasoline hit the highest price in three years, the club said.

Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon. Nelson stayed in the game and pitched the bottom of the fifth, but his velocity was down and he was removed from the game.


Michigan's current daily statewide average is about $2.54 per gallon, about 15 cents less than last week's average and about 44 cents more than this same time past year.

Prices in Florida are 46 cents higher than a month earlier.

Gasoline prices across the Southeast were dealt a one-two punch by Mother Nature, first by Hurricane Harvey shutting down much of Texas' refinery capacity and closing a major pipeline through Georgia, followed by Hurricane Irma sweeping through Florida and Georgia Sept. 10-11.

Schumer on Sunday asked the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to watch for gasoline price gouging, which he said could contribute to high gasoline prices in his state after Harvey and Irma. As refineries recovered, gas prices should have begun to decline after Labor Day, but the arrival of hurricane Irma caused a surge in demand, preventing the impending plunge. The state average is 1.5 cents less than a week ago, yet remains 55 cents more than this time past year.

"Gas prices are poised to plummet 30 cents", Jenkins continued. Not a threat to make landfall, Hurricane Jose, a Category 1, is well off the shore of North Carolina. That state average was $2.43 this morning, compared to $2.57 a week ago. Alaska, California, Hawaii, Montana and Utah saw average prices rise slightly, but should see relief in the weeks ahead.
