TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Meanwhile, drivers are wishing prices were lower but hoping the situation doesn’t get worse.

VERBATIM: Despite the break, that price tag is still difficult for many customers who have been struggling with relentless inflation and have been used to lower prices. Heading into the winter, a number of conditions are straining oil supply, which could end up pushing prices for oil and gasoline higher. Among them are restrictions on who can buy Russian oil and a price cap of $60 per barrel on Russia’s crude because of the war in Ukraine.
