AAA: Gas Prices Will Fall Into Election Day

AAA expects the national average gas price to slide into election day.  From spokesman Michael Green:

AAA predicts that the national average price of gasoline will decline by Election Day, but consumers in many parts of the country, especially in the Northeast and West Coast, may experience temporary price increases over the next couple of weeks as a result of record-low gasoline inventories.”

A new gas price chart from AAA suggests that prices may have already topped out for the year:
