How gas prices have changed in Shreveport in the last week

Gasoline prices are up slightly this week after drivers enjoyed a Memorial Day weekend in which the average cost for a gallon of gas was just below the average seen a year ago.

"June tends to be a month of smooth sailing, where we see gas prices decline in most areas, and that's a trend that looks the most likely for drivers, barring unexpected refinery snags or a tropical storm developing," GasBuddy analyst Patrick De Haan said in a statement Tuesday.

The U.S. is expected to see a historically high number of hurricanes this season which could push prices up in parts of the country if they cause enough damage to refineries and other infrastructure.

Gas prices are playing a larger role in the political discussion as the November election looms. Last week, President Biden announced the country would sell off more of its strategic petroleum reserves to keep pump prices down this summer, though analysts anticipate it will have minimal impact. Plus, Democratic congressional leaders called for an investigation into oil industry practices alleging possible collusion and price fixing. Industry groups have pushed back on that claim by saying markets set prices, not companies.
