This week’s drop in gasoline prices, already well below the $4 mark hit earlier this month, is expected to continue in the coming days, one oil analyst says.
“People are going to be surprised in the next couple of weeks. It will be drastic,” said Tom Kloza, Gasbuddy.com’s chief oil analyst. “People will say, ‘Wow, they really do go down.’?”
By yesterday afternoon, prices already had dropped to as low as $3.39 per gallon at several stations in Columbus, according to Gasbuddy’s website, and Kloza said prices could fall as far as to $3 or $3.25 per gallon for a short period.
The average retail price in Columbus yesterday was $3.69 per gallon, down 21 cents over the past week, according to AAA.
