Gas prices dropping

November 25th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

As over 45 million Americans and 967,000 Marylanders hit the roads this week for the Thanksgiving holiday, motorists filled up their tanks paying the highest gas prices for the holiday since 2014.  With most travelers returning home today through Sunday, many will be paying lower prices at the pump than when they filled up their vehicles, before their trip. Today’s national gas price average is $2.52 per gallon, which is four cents lower compared to a week ago, but six cents higher than one month ago and 39 cents per gallon more than the price this time last year. Marylanders returning home will find the average price for gas four cents lower than the national average at $2.48 per gallon, which is three cents less than last week, but nine cents more than last month and 31 cents higher than last year on this date.

Drivers nationwide and across Maryland continue to see lower prices at the pumps with this week’s prices finally averaging lower than last month’s costs, when Hurricane Harvey’s destruction was evident. Post hurricane, Gulf Coast refineries are building toward resuming normal operations, but it could take some longer than others to return to pre-hurricane production rates. As utilization rates increase and operations improve across the Gulf Coast, gas prices will continue to drop.

Today’s national average is $2.51, which is six cents lower than this time last week, 15 cents lower than this time last month and 26 cents higher than this time last year.

Maryland’s average cost at the pump is pricing at six cents per gallon less than the national average at $2.45 per gallon. The state’s average reflects a decrease of seven cents from a week ago, a 29 cents drop compared to last month, but a 20 cents increase over last year’s price.
