Consumers are spending $69 more a month to fill-up compared to last summer. According to AAA, gasoline expenses are accounting, on average, for seven percent of an American’s 2018 annual income, a one and half percent increase since summer of 2017. With strong summer consumer gasoline demand expected in the months ahead, AAA says motorists can expect little relief at the pump with the national gas price average ranging between $2.85 - $3.05 through Labor Day.

Seven percent is a big number, and is higher for people who drive and commute regularly.

Based on recent drops in oil prices, gas price have stabilized, and will almost certainly not spike to over the $3 level
