The recent decline in the U.S. national average has been most welcome and I'm sure much appreciated by motorists. However, the national average could turn around in the week ahead as production of refined products drop and supplies grow tighter.

The U.S. national average starts the new work week at $3.67/gallon, having dropped 3c/gal in the last week. Surprisingly, average prices are below where they were one year ago when prices averaged $3.76/gal.

There's ominous news on the horizon, however. Oil prices made advances late last week, and wholesale gasoline prices followed higher. This may give shape to a new upward trend in gasoline prices over the next few days, with gas stations in the Great Lakes states perhaps hiking...

This has nothing to do with the price of gas -- it's greed and what they can get away with --

Once they say it is going down, it spikes. Then they say it is going up then it drops.......
