Gas prices continued to rise in most parts of the country during the past week as higher oil prices drove up the prices of gasoline and other refined products. “But, there may be some light at the end of the tunnel,” said Patrick de Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “The sharp rise we’ve seen over the past three weeks should start to slow soon, except for another jump in oil prices. This is because gasoline prices are now largely back to the rally in oil prices that started nearly a month ago. That’s not Very clear for the future, as oil prices could rise again at any time. But for now, oil has settled at around $83 a barrel and, without further upside, gas price increases should soon slow in the greater part of the country.”
