"As I expected, the panic at the pump slowed considerably in the last week, with the national barely grinding out an increase in the last week," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst. "A cooling in oil prices during the previous week heavily influenced last week's quieter increase."
