Gasoline Prices Continue to Fall as Oil Prices Drop

As part of the commodity sell-off, oil prices were down again today (the price of gold is irrelevant for the economy, but oil matters). According to Bloomberg, WTI was down to $87.62 per barrel, and Brent was down to $100.39 per barrel.

According to Gasbuddy.com (see graph at bottom), gasoline prices are down to a national average of $3.50 per gallon. Using the calculator from Professor Hamilton, and the current price of Brent crude oil, the national average should be around $3.35 per gallon. That is about 15 cents below the current level according to Gasbuddy.com, and I expect prices to fall further. The low for the year is in the $3.20s per gallon, and a year ago gasoline was at $3.90 per gallon.
