Past Performance No Guarantee of Future Results
SPRING PRICE SEASONALITY WANING
Retail Prices



Futures markets are indicating a moderate 17¢ gal. gasoline price hike in store for Spring 2017. This year's seasonal hike was a no-show. The seasonal demand build and RVP regs normally boost gasoline prices each Spring, but the average hike is about 30¢, not twice that as is typically forecasted, this study finds. In coming years, gasoline price seasonality will likely continue to weaken.
