"While the rate that gasoline prices may slow nationally this week, I don't yet believe we've seen the peak in prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Refineries are in the middle of one of their two major yearly maintenance seasons, which means as refineries wrap up their work in April, we could see restarting issues, which could bring the spikes in gasoline prices we're nearly accustom to seeing every spring."
