Retail fuel margins drop this week
In the OPIS report today, average retail fuel margins across the US dropped $0.014 per gallon. The national US average is now $0.154 per gallon, just under the year to date average of $0.158 per gallon.
The six week retail fuels margin average is $0.150 per gallon. This same Friday last year had the average retail fuels margin at $0.175.
In 2013, we saw a dramatic increase in retail fuel margins the second Friday of April, where the average jumped to $0.268 per gallon. April was a strong year in 2013, with the average retail fuel margin for the month being $0.219 per gallon. Let’s hope retail fuel margins turn around again this year.
