Gas Buddy says the falling prices are largely due to continued anxiety over the omicron variant and because some countries have begun issuing lockdowns, keeping motorists in some countries from consuming as much fuel. They expect slow declines to continue in the next few weeks as stations continue to sell through their higher-priced inventory.
