"In the last few years, we've typically seen a seasonal downward trend at the gas pump as the cooler temperatures invade," Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com, said in a release. "We just haven't seen any sort of real decline at the pump yet this autumn.”
DeHaan said “the small drop in gasoline prices isn't to the satisfaction of many, and I don't see enough relief to satisfy the majority of American motorists any time soon."
