The decline has been even larger in this region.

Hurricane Harvey drove the highest gas prices of 2017 so far, AAA says. According to Jenkins, prices are still about 10 cents higher than expected because of residual effects from recent hurricanes. "So motorists should expect another round of discounts this week". Price volatility has been felt across the country, beyond states directly impacted by the storms.
