Oregon Fuel Price Variance

fuel-market-report-star-oilco-5-25-24

Fuel Market News

The fuel market experienced minimal price variances this past week, as diesel prices hardly moved and gas prices surprisingly fell $0.20 on the wholesale market. The retail market did not see as steep of a decline for gasoline as the retail average in Oregon dropped only $0.06. It is not much of a surprise that the market didn’t move much last week, as many were out for the week for Memorial Day. However, it is surprising that with the increased travel trends, gas prices did not jump.

 

City of Portland began their fuel blending requirements for all diesel blends to increase to the minimum of a B15 blend. This will lead to most stations using B20 biodiesel or R99 Renewable diesel if allocations allow for it. To learn more about these changes that will affect your company’s vehicles, equipment, and annual fuel purchasing schedule an appointment with one of our fuel market analysts.

Important Note: Per the City Of Portland, “Distributors in the City of Portland are required to meet the minimum biofuel content requirements for all fuel they distribute beginning on May 15, 2024. All diesel fuel distributed to retail stations, non-retail dealers, or wholesale purchaser-consumers must include a minimum of 15% biofuel content, from either renewable diesel or biodiesel. This requirement increases to 50% on May 15, 2026, and 99% on May 15, 2030”.

 

Crude oil is trading below $80 for the fourth week straight, at a current price of $79.83/barrel, $0.51 higher than last week, as oil prices trended upward, for the second time in four weeks.

 

Crude oil is the main ingredient for gasoline and diesel. Per AAA, on average about 50% of what you pay at the pump is the price of crude oil, breaking down as 25% refining, 11% distribution & marketing, and 14% taxes—a helpful breakdown for consumers wondering why they are paying the prices that they pay. Crude Oil is trading at $79.83 per barrel compared to $79.32 last week and $81 a year ago.

It’s essential to recognize that fuel prices result from a complex interplay of the factors mentioned above and other factors regionally. Additionally, prices may vary by specific regions within Oregon and Washington.

Oregon Fuel Price Variance

Fuel Market News

The fuel market experienced minimal price variances this past week as the wholesale market saw rack averages drop $0.05 for gasoline, $0.01 for B5 diesel, and $0.02 for B20. The retail market dropped slightly as the average price for gasoline in Oregon dropped to $4.36 while diesel averages dropped $0.04. Diesel prices have been relatively low over the last few weeks, as gasoline has lacked much consistency in its price, hovering within $0.10 of its price the weeks before. The Portland market will see an influx of B20 and R99 into supply as the City Of Portland begins phasing out petroleum diesel.

Oregon Fuel Price Variance

fuel-market-report-star-oilco-5-11

Fuel Market News

The fuel market experienced downward price fluctuation, as two-thirds of the country experienced price drops at the pump. This has largely been due to the falling price of crude oil as it is below $80 for the second week straight. In Oregon, wholesale gasoline prices dropped $0.15, while diesel prices $0.08. We saw this trickle down to the retail pumps as prices dropped $0.07 for gasoline and $0.03 for diesel.

 

A few factors that could affect the fuel market as we roll into summer are wildfires across the country as they are more common in the summer months, increased demand for gasoline, and increased travel trends.
