“As COVID-19 case numbers surpass 4 million, demand for gasoline is weakening across the country,” said Lloyd Albert, AAA Northeast Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs. “The latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) demand reading measures at 8.5 million barrels per day, which is about 11% less than a year ago. Gas prices are likely to fluctuate throughout the rest of the summer due to COVID-19 concerns.”
