gas prices

October 12, 2021

Looking out on the horizon, I really don’t see an organized drop in prices. The market is starting to feel explosive.

Head Petroleum Analyst Patrick De Haan,, on higher gas prices.
  • In the U.S., gas prices at the pump reflect the highest average price per gallon of gas in 7 years.
  • Oil prices (which help predict the future price of gasoline and other petroleum products) recently hit multi-year highs.
  • The prices of generally “cheaper” forms of fuel, such as natural gas or coal, have also seen rising prices.
  • Why This Matters: High demand for oil, natural gas, coal, and gasoline has impacted energy markets all over the world. This has led to a concern about supply keeping up with demand, and worries about the potential impact of a particularly harsh winter. All of this has resulted in higher prices.
