Gas prices have slowly been decreasing over the past few weeks. The national average gasoline price has been reduced by almost 49 cents a gallon. The reason for the drop in prices is because of the recent increase in the supply of crude oil. Also, it is partly because of the sudden growth in oil production happening in the United States. There are concerns about the economy’s recovery, which lead to lower demand for oil. For consumers, it will be beneficial because there is more disposable income to be used for other expenses. The savings consumers get back from gas prices will be slow but will be returned in the end. This will encourage consumers to start to spend again. Alternative lenders will gain more opportunities for gain business due to this change. Hopefully, the decline in gas prices is a sign in America’s upturn and everything will only go up from here.
