Crude closed at $124.44 a barrel on Wednesday and off more than 15% from its intraday high of $147.27 on July 11. Wholesale gasoline was also down 3.6% to $3.0344 a gallon. A government report showing a larger domestic supply of gasoline, a lower demand for fuel and stronger U.S. dollar have all contributed to lower prices at the pump. I filled with unleaded regular in Akron, Ohio for $3.68, but unfortunately return only 21.5 mpg on my Honda Pilot.
