“With the summer driving season now underway, average gasoline prices have risen in some areas and fallen in others. Most states have prices so far slightly below their 2024 peak as some refinery issues in the Great Lakes weigh on prices there, while other areas, like the West Coast, have seen significant relief and more to come,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “June is typically a month when gasoline prices drop in most areas, and that trend is most likely for drivers, barring unexpected refinery issues or a tropical storm. The national average on Memorial Day was down ever so slightly from last year — prices were about 10 cents lower per gallon when adjusted for inflation. Not a bad way to start summer!”
