Gas prices hold steady in Cumberland

October 21st, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Gas prices nationwide and in Maryland, on average, continue to decline although not as dramatically as in weeks prior and not in all regions. Despite the downward slide, prices have yet to drop to pre-Hurricane Harvey levels.

Today’s national average is $2.46 per gallon, which is two cents lower than this time last week, 15 cents lower than this time last month and 23 cents higher than this time last year.  While gas prices are more expensive than a year ago, the past five weeks of sustained weekly declines indicate that demand may be leveling out alongside refineries and pipelines returning to pre-hurricane operations.

Maryland’s average cost at the pump is pricing at eight cents per gallon less than the national average at $2.38 per gallon. The state’s average reflects a decrease of four cents from a week ago, a 24 cents drop compared to last month, but a 12 cents increase over last year’s price.

Gasoline demand is on the rise and that is certainly no surprise as more than 34 million people nationwide and nearly 744,000 Marylanders hit the road for the extended holiday weekend.  While gas prices are higher than this same day least year, drivers nationwide saw little upward movement this week in gas prices. Prices across Maryland have dropped or remained flat.  

Today’s national average is $2.38 per gallon. This price is a penny more than one week ago, no change from a month ago, but five cents more than a year ago.

Maryland’s average cost is a penny lower than the national average at $2.37 per gallon, which reflects a one cent decrease from a week ago and no change compared to last month’s price. The state average remains higher than last year’s price but only by three cents.
