Research done by AAA also found that following the Fourth of July weekend, the United States experienced a nearly 1 million barrel per day jump in gas demand. This type of demand is expected to continue in the coming weeks as Americans continue to hit the road for summer travel.
“Peak summer driving season is in full swing as Americans hit the road to explore and gas prices are not backing down. Motorists are paying, on average, nearly a dollar more a gallon than last summer to fill up and close to 40 cents more than in 2019,” says a release from AAA East Central.
