OK, I’ll bite.... how does “warmer winter” signify lower gasoline consumption?
Lower heating oil consumption means less demand. That combined with lower domestic demand on gas, and higher global refining should equal lower prices domestically.
Hussein and the oil cartels are working on it though/s
Most everybody around here in Minnesota has noticed that their gas mileage goes down noticeably in very cold weather.
Gasoline is consumed to produce energy. The more of it that is used to heat the air for combustion, the more that is consumed, since the energy used for propulsion should be the same either way. I suppose there might be some small effect too from moving the vehicle through denser air the colder it gets, and more people warming up their cars before driving.
