AAA: Average gas prices in Michigan fall 9 cents

Price of Regular Gasoline in Houston Falls 2.4 Cents From Last Week

But there could be an uptick next month as refineries begin their maintenance season and thus lower their output of gasoline.

Gas prices continued to slide lower over the past week in Lancaster, dropping 4.5 cents to an average of $2.52 a gallon Monday, according to GasBuddy.

The surge in supply and plummeting demand have had a key role in gasoline prices falling in 45 of the nation's 50 states during the last week. That's the third consecutive weekly decline, but compared with the same day a year ago, prices are 46.1 cents a gallon higher.

Lima was the only community to see an increase this week, with the average price up 1 cent to $2.45.

The price of gasoline nationally has now fallen 22 straight days, the longest streak since last summer, according to Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.

High-Level North Korean Defector Says Kim's 'Days Are Numbered'
He does regret, however, that other relatives he left behind may have been punished and sent to prison camps for his defection. Mr Thae , who defected last August, predicts that reunification with South Korea could happen within five years.

AAA attributed the current run of price dips to seasonal trends -prices usually dip in January - and increased USA crude oil production.

The national average price of gas continues to decline as US oil production increases. Prices in much of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast have followed the national average by dropping during the past week, according to AAA. "However, we may continue to see the national average moderate during the next week, with the exception of the Great Lakes, where a price adjustment of sorts is still expected".

During November, OPEC and non-OPEC countries struck an agreement to cut production collectively by 1.8 million barrels per day for the first six months of 2017. The increased United States production continues to offset OPEC's recent efforts to rebalance the global oil through production cuts. "The U.S. has been the only destination for Canadian crude oil for as long as Canadians have been producing crude oil". Dansville, which has had the lowest average price in the county for weeks, was down a penny from a week ago.

Demand estimates from the Energy Information Administration are eye-opening: gasoline demand down 7.7% so far in 2017 versus a year ago, barely making it past 8 million barrels per day, down almost 20% versus peak summer demand season.
