"Relief at the pump has indeed begun across the country with a majority of states seeing average prices decline versus a week ago, giving solid evidence the worst is likely behind us," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "However, the potential lightning rod of a U.S./China trade deal is perhaps the only prospect that could bring a return to higher prices. For now, just a dozen or so states saw prices rising while most moved lower, including California, but some pain may linger in Washington and Oregon where supply remains tight and prices high. We'll be watching for refinery utilization rates to rise in this week's report from the Energy Information Administration- it will be a critical data point on where and when more relief arrives. For most Americans, I think we'll slowly all join in on the falling prices and by June, the national average may stand 5-20 cents lower than today, provided there's no trade deal with the U.S. and China, whereas a trade deal could lead to a second hurrah at the pump."
