The American driving public enjoyed dropping gas prices for 98 straight days this summer, in part due to a slowing in the demand for oil globally.
This was the longest losing stretch for gasoline prices since the early 1970 months.
Now, a reduction in oil supply that the OPEC+ group hinted at last week has raised global crude prices, driving up gas prices once further.
The average nationwide price of a gallon of gas increased to $3.92 on Monday, according to AAA.
According to Patrick De Haan, chief petroleum analyst at the gas price monitoring organisation GasBuddy.com.
prices are anticipated to continue rising from here as oil prices rise.
