"Oil prices remain volatile yet several dollars off recent highs. Gasoline prices remain in somewhat of a limbo as a result, with a mixed bag at pumps across the United States," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

"Thus far, we have seen a market that's lacked solid upward movement when it usually sees exactly that. This could lend weight to oil prices being too high, but at the same time, we continue to see if any major disruptions occur at U.S. refineries to offset any devaluation in the price of oil. So far the balance is in the middle, but threats remain in the months ahead- we're still expecting a surge, so motorists aren't off the hook by any means yet," DeHaan said.
