The cost of filling your gas tank has stalled, on average, over the last month, despite efforts by world powers to drive it higher.
Weeks after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries announced a cut to oil production intended to drive profit higher for oil-producing countries, retail gas prices have yet to budge.
A gallon of gas was $3.58 on average, according to AAA gas price data. Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in Oregon. Gas prices are as of June 23.
At least one oil and gas executive is warning, however, that a stagnation in domestic oil production nationwide currently playing out could spell higher gas prices months from now. For now, lower demand for gas is keeping prices at the pump low for consumers.
