EIA: Retail Gasoline Prices to Slip in 2013

OilPrice.com -- U.S. retail gasoline prices should drop below the July average by 2013 amid depressed consumer demand and continuing declines in crude oil prices. U.S. lawmakers were in panic mode when the average price of gasoline hovered at around $4 per gallon in April. While relatively low compared with European markets, U.S. consumer sentiment historically turns negative when retail gasoline prices pass the $4 per gallon threshold. By next year, however, it's likely the prices at the pump will be below the current average of $3.41 per gallon, the U.S. Energy Department said.

Once again, if prices are lower, they won't be lower forever. Any decline won't last long and it'll be up again as it's up again from recent lows.

The demand from China will determine the demand. If their economy heats up, prices will rise.

While relatively low compared with European markets,"

How do they know? The oil companies get more than they should for it and is about the same around the world except for countries that subsidize for their people. The others just pay more taxes to support government programs. We don't have cheaper gas, just less taxes!

If Obama is re-elected I would expect that gas prices next year will be north of $4.50/gallon.

These bozos can't predict what pump prices are going to be next week. Do they think we believe they can predict for next year?

Rega, if you believe that then you will be sorely disappointed come November. Plenty of STUPID people exist that will vote for the idiot. I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it. This country voted for Bush twice, well really once, so it will do the same for the current WH resident.

Analysts, the Media and "So CAlled" Esperts along with the speculators are the ones keeping the price at the pump high. Supply and demand, have noting to do with the price at the pump any more.

Based on what data?

The big brown stinking hunk of data they just pulled out of their ass?

There is no other data that could possibly lead them to that conclusion.
