Gas prices on decline

October 24th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Prices at the pump continue to drop with the national average falling for 14 consecutive days after a slight uptick earlier in the month.  The national average price for regular unleaded gasoline dropped to $2.22 per gallon today, down six cents in the last week and a low unseen since February 2015. Maryland’s gas prices are following a similar pattern to the nationwide trend, dropping for 13 consecutive days.  The state average is four cents lower than the national average at $2.18 per gallon and also at a low price not seen in eight months.  Maryland’s average is four cents less than one week ago, eight cents less than last month, and 87 cents per gallon cheaper than last year on this date. Cumberland is down a penny from a week ago now averaging $2.21 per gallon

Gas prices in Maryland are a good bit lower this Memorial Day holiday than one year ago.  WBAL reports that the average for regular is hovering around $3.58 currently.  That compares with $3.85 or more in late May 2011. 

The current average is also a nickel lower than a week ago and about 30 cents below a month ago. 

And gasoline in Maryland is a relative bargain, about a dime lower than the current national average. 

The downward trend is expected to continue in the next few weeks.
