the news motorists have been waiting for - it appears that at least for now,
the national average has peaked," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum
Analyst Patrick DeHaan in a news release. "Since February 7, gasoline
prices have been on an upward trajectory in a majority of the U.S., and at
least for now, prices have broken that upward trend and have stabilized. This
is great news, as it likely means in the next couple weeks that gasoline prices
will begin seeing more downward momentum . By Memorial Day, if there aren't
major refinery kinks that develop, we could see the national average dropping
into the $3.50s, or perhaps even lower".
