“We have now seen the national average price of petrol rise for four weeks in a row, which is not unusual for this time of year. The number of attacks on Russian oil refineries is unusual; Attacks that could have global impact if they continue,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Russia could see more capacity compromised by the attacks, forcing the country to purchase such products on the global market, driving up prices everywhere. With oil prices now under more pressure and attacks on Russian refineries potentially increasing, we could be in for a few more weeks of rising prices. Also significant is the fact that Americans are now experiencing inflation at the pump again and prices are higher than they were a year ago.”
