Including the change in gas prices in Cleveland during the past week, prices Sunday were 9.3 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 7.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.

After a dramatic decline in gasoline prices in virtually every region in the past month, gasoline prices have started to rise," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "While I don't necessarily believe that the recent uptick in crude prices will stick, I also don't see prices falling considerably lower until after the conclusion of the summer driving season, when demand declines, and more expensive blends are phased out," DeHaan said.
