After much thought, deliberation, analysis, and discussion, GasBuddy has released today a revised gasoline price forecast for average prices across the United States.

In our revised forecast, we outline that we believe average gasoline prices may go higher nationally than what we had previously expected in January. While our initial forecast in January called for gasoline prices to average $3.75-$4.15 at their peak in May, we now expect prices nationally to peak between $3.95-$4.35 per gallon.

While we certainly hope that our forecast is shooting too high, we believe through past analysis that our forecasts represent the most likely scenario for gasoline prices.

We have also slightly adjusted the peak prices...

Sounds like a 7 day meteorologist forecast. In two days it will change.

Well, it's June and gas prices here in Cleveland are as high as they have been all year!

We saw most stations at $3.999 last week into early this week. We're seeing some settling back, but I expect $4.099 Wednesday or Thursday around here.

64 out of 64 times there has been an article about prices stabilizing or dropping, we've seen a price spike within 48 hours. There was an article in the news list today.

Hope you filled up!

davr: that cheaper diesel went out the door in Aug. 2008 when diesel went over $5/gallon and the economy didn't instantly collapse.

It also has been rarer to find good light sweet crude (as in contrast to heavy sour crude) that can be refined easily into diesel fuel. Sour crude contains less refinable diesel. Add to that the fact that we now have the requirement for ULSD which in the case of sour crude has to be mechanically and chemically cleaned out. And diesel, which used to be truly the cheaper fuel is now on average 30 cents more.

ugh, I still don't get why diesel is so much higher. What happened to it being atleast 30 cents cheaper than gas?
