AAA expects retail gasoline prices to trend lower as 2014 unfolds for four reasons:

  • Domestic oil production is strong and is expected to grow;
  • With the lifting of sanctions, Iran is poised to open their export oil spigots;
  • U.S. motorists continue to invest in more fuel-efficient vehicles, reducing demand;
  • Factory output appears to be slowing in China, which will also cut demand.

Today's national average for regular gasoline stands at $3.28, down three cents from a week ago and a year ago. The highest state averages today are Hawaii at $4.02, Connecticut at $3.66, and Alaska and New York, both at $3.65.

West Texas Intermediate crude oil continues to languish around $95 per barrel, after hitting a 30-day high of $100.32 on Dec. 27, 2013.
