Gas prices in Iowa have dipped slightly in the past week to $2.28 a gallon. "Gas prices will face upward pressure this week due to a series of refinery issues in the Gulf Coast".

Strong fuel demand, as well as in more rural areas associated with traffic for Monday's solar eclipse, has continued, and that includes gasoline shortages in some areas of the country where the eclipse is most visible.

With much of the nation going to be impacted by Monday's eclipse, Jenkins advised motorists to be careful on the roads. The cheapest was $2.17 in Tampa and Orlando. "Motorists should realize other drivers may be attempting to watch the eclipse and drive at the same time". The Plains, South, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and New England regions may all see gas prices drift lower in the week ahead. OR prices jumped 10 cents per gallon and the regional market overall was strained by a decline in gasoline inventory levels for the third week in a row.
