Gas prices hold steady

August 12th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Gas prices nationally and across most of Maryland shifted into reverse since a week ago, but barely. Last week prices had risen as much as 10 cents per gallon from the prior week. Today, the cost at the pump has dropped since last week by a penny, in some parts of the state, to as much as six cents per gallon, in Salisbury, although prices in some areas remain unchanged. Maryland’s average cost at the pump is two cents lower than the national average at $2.34 per gallon. The state’s cost reflects a penny decrease from a week ago, a 10 cent increase compared to last month’s price and a 23 cent per gallon rise over last year’s price.

While motorists nationwide and in Maryland are paying higher gas prices than last year, they are seeing prices drop slowly at a time when prices historically rise. Today’s national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.36, a four cent drop from one week ago; however, it is an increase of a penny over last month and a 14 cents per gallon rise from this time last year.

Maryland’s average cost is $2.35 per gallon, reflecting a five cents drop from last week. The state’s average has been on a downward trend for over two weeks since mid-April. However, as with the nationwide price, the state’s average continues to remain higher than last month, by a penny as well, and last year on this date, by eight cents. 

In Cumberland the rate holds steady from last week at $2.42
