FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Average retail gasoline prices in Fort Wayne have fallen 9.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.00 per gallon Monday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 3 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.26 per gallon.
Experts with GasBuddy say while prices have come down, we now head to the time of year when hurricane season enters the picture. In the last couple of years we have seen minimal to no disruption as hurricane season largely went by with no major storms that hit land.
Should we see a major hurricane enter the Gulf, gas prices may react. For the week ahead, drivers can expect much of the country to see prices continue to trickle lower. The Great Lakes states may see their first price increase in weeks as stations have undercut each other to the point where they begin losing money.
This summer has featured the cheapest Memorial Day, July 4, and perhaps Labor Day in the last 11 years, and drivers have been responding by hitting the roads in record numbers, according to a GasBuddy study.
