Capital.com reports there are more low gas prices to come. Their forecast expects gas to fall even more as we come into the fall and winter months. As 2023 rapidly approaches, gas prices are predicted to continue dropping well into the new year. A Finch Solutions Oil gas analyst expects to see gas prices 9.3% below the averages for 2022 with the demand slowing from 2% to 1.5%.
Finch anticipates gas prices to remain low over the next few years and predicts that they could get as low as $2.28 by 2025. There is no way to predict for certain how the gas prices will change, but it is likely they will stay low, at least for the time being.
All this could mean more road trip opportunities with discounted travel. Who doesn’t love cheap trips?
