The EIA slashes its forecast for average gasoline prices during the summer driving period; instead of the $3.95/gallon estimate it put out in April, the agency now expects prices to average just $3.79 during April-September. The report marks the fifth straight weekly drop, and it helps ease fears U.S. prices will soon push above the $4 mark.
