“As oil prices have hit a bit of a rough patch in the last two weeks, gasoline prices have stumbled as well with a majority of states seeing a weekly pullback in retail prices,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com, in Monday’s news release. “For now, there’s a major tug of war going on with oil prices — a move higher or lower in the week ahead could determine the direction of prices the next few weeks or longer,” DeHaan said.
