Gas Prices Hold Steady in Cumberland

March 3rd, 2018 by WCBC Radio

While the national average has risen this week, Maryland’s average price is holding steady with many metro areas following suit. However, a number of other areas across the state are seeing prices start to creep higher since last week, falling in line with AAA’s forecast of a price spike this spring. Most notable are the significant price increases in parts of Western Maryland.  Only Salisbury experienced a weekly drop in the average price but only by a penny. Cumberland held steady at $2.65. Today’s national average price is $2.54 per gallon, which is more than two cents from last week, but remains lower by six cents versus last month.  Compared to last year on this date, the national average is up by 22 cents per gallon.

Maryland’s average is four cents lower than the national price at $2.50 per gallon, which is unchanged from last week and 11 cents less than last month, but 21 cents higher than last year’s price on this date.  Hagerstown and Frederick are experiencing the highest weekly increases, as Hagerstown’s average price of the pump rose eight cents per gallon, while Frederick’s price is up four cents.

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.
