Market outlook of gasoline market in the US

Technavio’s gasoline market analysis predicts the gasoline market in the US to witness a decline in the consumption of gasoline during the forecast period. In terms of gallons consumed per day, the analysts have estimated this market to surpass 18,732 gpd by the end of 2020. The government mandates to use gasoline in conjunction with additives has led to the constant use of gasoline in the market. Gasoline can be blended with biofuels such as ethanol, which results in better performance than its other counterparts such as diesel. Government regulations support the use of gasoline over other fuels due to the right balance of emissions and fuel performance that it provides.

The transportation industry in the US is undergoing continual changes in terms of technology upgrades in light duty vehicles. The vehicles currently being manufactured have improved vehicle bodies and engines.  Also, the stringent government regulations encourage the use of better grade gasoline leading to more efficiency gains. This in turn leads to a decrease in the quantity of gasoline consumed per mile. A combination of these two factors has resulted in a constant decline in gasoline consumption over the years that is expected to continue during the forecast period.
