"We've barely eked out a drop in the national average over the last week, extending the streak to 11 straight weeks of decline, even as some states have seen prices jump, while others have seen prices continue to inch lower. Motorists can blame the OPEC+ meeting for causing oil to jump early last week and then plummet late last week for the volatility in gas prices," says Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. On the national side GasBuddy says the price of gasoline has fallen 0.4 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.21 per gallon.
