CHART DU JOUR: GAS PRICES

Takeaway: So now the regionals have to worry about gas prices too?

  • We’ve shown that historically, high gas prices are a statistically significant hurdle for regional gaming revenues
  • Despite common thought, YoY change has a bigger impact than sequential changes in gas prices – at least, statistically speaking
  • Gas prices are now higher than last year for the first time since March, but not significantly so.  The trend is still a little disconcerting, though.
