Why are gas fees lower over the weekend (Saturday, Sunday)?
This question is not exactly a coding problem but would help me understand a few things conceptually. My observation is that the traded volume is higher during weekends. Yet, contrary to my expectations, gas fees are lower during weekends. As far as I know, fees are decided by the miners, and when you offer more gas, your work will get picked up faster. Therefore, if the previous statement is correct, more available work will lead to the prioritisation of customers offering a higher reward.
Follow-up question: What reliable tools exist to track the volume of traded Ether? Maybe my confusion comes from unreliable volume trackers.

P.S. Please be tolerant. I am relatively new to this world and still learning.
