Retail fuel margins see third consecutive week of increases
According to the latest OPIS report, the US national retail fuel margins increased for the third consecutive week, reaching a healthy average of $0.240 per gallon. The increase this week was enough to uptick the average retail fuel margins for the year to $0.183 per gallon, the highest year to date retail fuel margins of 2013.
The average retail fuel margins across the US for this quarter now stand at $0.201 per gallon and the six week average stands at $0.206 per gallon.
We are now into the second week of the annual transition from summer to winter blends, and with the likelihood of Syrian bombings decreasing, it is reasonable to be optimistic that retail fuel margins will continue upward.
