"For the first time in nearly two months, the nation's average price of gasoline has seen a weekly increase. Of course, most motorists suspected prices would rise ahead of July 4, but it's not the holiday that should be pointed at. Motorists can blame escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran for higher oil prices, declining inventories and even a potential U.S./China trade deal," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "While gas prices this July 4 are nearly guaranteed to be slightly under last year's level, we will continue to close that gap as prices are likely to continue rising, especially as several states slapped those traveling for the holiday with higher gasoline taxes just hours ago. The second half of the summer may end up being pricier than the first half, especially if the U.S. and China can get basically any trade deal in place and/or tensions continue to remain high between the U.S. and Iran. And not to forget hurricane season's peak in the second half, it may get ugly at the pump."
