According to Triple-A Mid-Atlantic, there's been a slow drop in prices since Gulf Coast refineries have begun to recover from the blows they were dealt by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma earlier this month. If the rest of this year follows the typical seasonal pattern, you can expect the recent pullback in gas prices to continue throughout the rest of the year.

"For the second straight week, nearly every state saw average gasoline prices fall notably as refineries continue to heal after Harvey and work on restoring production of motor fuels", GasBuddy Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan said.
