Prices at gas pumps have finally lowered, however the excitement for this seems to be short-lived. Even though the holidays are ever approaching, the excitement for how low the gas prices seem to be staying even during these hectic next few months has deteriorated, as no one knows if these prices are going to stay this way. 

The main reason for the fall of gas is the decline in oil prices. According to CNBC, “While WTI is far below its March peak, it has jumped more than 5% over the last week.” However, one month of relief will probably not make a trend.
