“As COVID-19 case numbers surpass 4 million, demand for gasoline is weakening across the country,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release. “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.”
