Gas Prices Holding Steady

June 16th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Maryland drivers are finding both good news and bad news at the pump. The good news is that local gas prices continue to drop slightly but the bad news is that many areas are seeing prices between 50 and 60 cents higher than one year ago.

With strong summer consumer gasoline demand expected in the months ahead, AAA Mid-Atlantic says motorists can expect little relief at the pump with the national gas price average expected to range between $2.85 and $3.05 through Labor Day. Maryland’s average cost range will likely be slightly lower than the national range given historical trends.

Today’s national gas price average is $2.90 per gallon, which is down three cents in the last week, but up two cents in the last month and 58 cents higher than this time last year.

Maryland’s average is four cents lower than the national average at $2.86 per gallon, which is three cents less than last week and two cents lower from last month, but 58 cents more than last year on this date.

Gasoline prices in some regions of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast are beginning to rise slightly. Today’s national average price at the pump is $2.31 per gallon. This is two cents more compared to month ago, and week ago prices, and 25 cents per gallon more than the same date last year.  Maryland’s average price of $2.31 per gallon mirrors the national average and shows the same week over week and month ago increases. Maryland’s average is 23 cents more than the same date last year. In Cumberland the price is down two cents from last week at $2.37, but still among the highest in the state.
