Retail fuel margins up a tick
The OPIS report today revealed that the average retail fuel margin across the US ticked up $0.006 per gallon this week to $0.171 per gallon. That moves the year to date average to $0.163 per gallon and the Q2 average to $0.169 per gallon. The six week average climbed for the sixth consecutive week to $0.190 per gallon.
This same day in 2013 the average retail fuel margin was $0.216 per gallon. But last year at this time, the average retail fuel margin dropped $0.06 per gallon the subsequent week to $0.152. If we can hold our retail fuel margins steady next week, we’ll be above last year for the first time in three weeks.
