When Gasoline Prices Matter

Wells Fargo Investment Institute - May 17, 2018

Key takeaways

  • Gasoline prices have risen by 18% year-over-year in the U.S. The national average price of gasoline has reached $2.87 per gallon.
  • Historically speaking, such gas-price moves have not spelled big trouble for the consumer, the U.S. economy, or the stock market. With that said, short 18% (plus) bursts in gas prices historically have hit lower-income consumers harder and eventually have led to slower gross domestic product (GDP) growth and slower stock-market gains.

What it may mean for investors

  • We believe that investors should “stay the course” with their investment plans.
