"Gasoline demand has continued to recover over the last week, with a 3% rise in demand versus last week according to data from Pay with GasBuddy, and that continues to push gasoline prices higher as well, for the eighth straight week," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "For now, it's likely that we remain on this path of rising prices, but we won't see gas prices snap back to normal for some time yet."
