An abundance of crude oil in the global market has helped push gas prices increasingly lower over the past 10 days.
AAA reported that as of Nov. 14, the national average price of gas sat at $2.17—five cents per gallon less than one week ago and eight cents less than one month ago.
Typically, gas demand dips in November, and with fall refinery maintenance season ending, pump prices should continue to move lower unless any unexpected outages occur.
Today, nine states have an average gas price below $2. The lowest gas average is in Missouri ($1.88) and Oklahoma ($1.88).
Hawaii has the highest gas prices at $2.90, followed by California ($2.76).
AAA noted that OPEC and non-OPEC countries are continuing their production cut discussions ahead of their formal meeting on Nov. 30 in Vienna, Austria. Decisions made at the formal meeting could impact crude levels, which would be reflected in retail prices.
