Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy says "If Israel, which has promised to respond with further attacks, indeed does press on, it could certainly still push oil prices higher. However, motorists can expect other factors to influence what they're paying at the pump. On the West Coast, price increases should finally slow, but the national average will likely climb again in the coming week."
