The Wall Street Journal: Gasoline prices to fall below $2 a gallon later this year: EIA

U.S. gasoline prices are set to fall below $2 a gallon on average in October and stay there through the winter, government forecasters said Tuesday.

The Energy Information Administration cut its price forecast for national average retail gasoline prices to $1.95 a gallon in the fourth quarter, down from last month’s forecast of $2.07 a gallon, according to the agency’s short-term energy outlook released Tuesday. The EIA expects gasoline prices to hold below $2 a gallon on average from October through February.

Gasoline prices have slid in recent weeks on concerns refiners have produced a glut of the fuel that is set to persist despite strong driving demand this summer.
