1 U.S. GASOLINE AND DISTILLATE FUELS UPDATE - DECEMBER 20, 2017 PRICE TRENDS Monday, December 18 According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the average U.S. retail price for regular grade of gasoline fell this week, down by 3.5 cents (1.4 percent) from the previous Monday s price to $2.450 per gallon. This week s price was above the year-ago price, up by 18.6 cents (8.2 percent) from $2.264 per gallon. This price was $1.66 (40.4 percent) below the record price of $4.114 per gallon set on 7/7/08. Dec 18 Dec 11 Ago Change from Last from Last Change from Last from Last prices remained above $2.00 in all twenty-seven of the sub-areas monitored by the EIA, CITIES and were above $3.00 in three sub-areas. There were twentyfive areas that posted weekover-week price declines, while two posted increases. Ohio posted the largest decrease of 13.4 cents from last week, while Chicago posted the largest Source: Energy Information Administration increase of 3.7 cents. The average price for regular-grade gasoline for this week ranged from a low of $2.098 per gallon in Houston to a high of $3.186 per gallon in San Francisco. prices generally track crude oil prices; however, historically there has often been a lag before crude oil price changes are reflected in retail gasoline prices. Other factors can also affect this correlation such as seasonal factors, changes in supply or demand for gasoline, refinery outages, and transportation problems.

2 Diesel According to the EIA, the U.S. Retail Diesel Prices average U.S. retail diesel price Change Change Record (including taxes) fell this Dec 18 Dec 11 Ago from Last from Last from Last from Last Record Date Price week, down by 0.9 cents (0.3 DIESEL percent) from last week to REGIONS $2.901 per gallon. The national average diesel price was above year-ago levels, up by 37.4 cents (14.8 percent) from last year s price of $2.527 per gallon. It was $1.86 (39.1 percent) below STATES the record price of $4.764 per gallon set on 7/14/08. Diesel Source: Energy Information Administration prices were down in all five regions of the U.S.: the East Coast (0.4 cents), the Midwest (1.0 cents), the Gulf Coast (0.8 cents), the Rocky Mountains (3.3 cents) and the West Coast (1.7 cents); and up in the following regions: Diesel prices in California were down from last week by 0.8 cents to $3.552 per gallon. Diesel fuel prices generally track those of crude oil. The price of crude oil is the main factor in the price of diesel fuel, and fluctuations in the crude oil market greatly influence changes in diesel prices. Short-run factors that can cause divergences from this correlation include supply shortages resulting from refinery outages, transportation issues, adverse weather conditions, and pipeline problems. Heating Oil The national average residential heating oil price rose from last week, up by 2.8 cents (1.0 percent) to $2.908 per gallon, according to EIA. This was 33.8 cents (13.2 percent) above last year s price of $2.570 per gallon. This is below the record price of $4.245 per gallon by $1.34. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index, the national residential heating oil price rose in November, up by 11.3 cents (4.5 percent) from October's price of $2.520 per gallon to $2.633 per gallon. The current price was 37.7 cents (16.7 percent) above last year s price of $2.256 per gallon, and $2.02 below the record price of $4.649 per gallon set in July Change from Record U.S. $2.901 $2.910 $ cents -0.3% 37.4 cents 14.8% $ /14/2008 -$1.863 East Coast $2.897 $2.901 $ cents -0.1% 33.8 cents 13.2% $ /14/2008 -$1.925 New England $2.924 $2.900 $ cents 0.8% 33.7 cents 13.0% $ /14/2008 -$1.965 Central Atlantic $3.060 $3.060 $ cents 0.0% 39.3 cents 14.7% $ /27/2008 -$1.853 Lower Atlantic $2.778 $2.788 $ cents -0.4% 30.8 cents 12.5% $ /14/2008 -$1.999 Midwest $2.853 $2.863 $ cents -0.3% 37.4 cents 15.1% $ /14/2008 -$1.845 Gulf Coast $2.697 $2.705 $ cents -0.3% 28.7 cents 11.9% $ /14/2008 -$2.040 Rocky Mountains $2.958 $2.991 $ cents -1.1% 46.3 cents 18.6% $ /14/2008 -$1.760 West Coast $3.327 $3.344 $ cents -0.5% 53.9 cents 19.3% $ /14/2008 -$1.582 California $3.552 $3.560 $ cents -0.2% 69.8 cents 24.5% $ /27/2008 -$1.475 The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration s (NOAA s) Climate Prediction Center reported that the weather across the nation was colder this past week.

3 Crude Oil NYMEX crude prices were down by 83.0 cents from last week s price to $57.16 per barrel ($1.361 per gallon) on Monday. The current price is $5.04 per barrel ($0.12 per gallon) above last year s price of $52.12 per barrel ($1.24 per gallon). This week s price was $88.13 per barrel ($2.10 per gallon) below the record price of $ per barrel ($3.46 per gallon) set on 7/7/08. Fluctuations in crude oil prices are the most significant cause of gasoline price swings over the long term. However, in the short term, the price of gasoline can also be affected by gasoline-specific supply and demand developments. Another factor affecting U.S. gasoline markets is the varying fuel specifications across the country. These specialized regional and local gasoline formulas reduce the flexibility of refiners and distributors to respond to supply disruptions.
