Gas prices inching upward

October 19th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Maryland drivers saw a slight bump in prices this week as gasoline supplies for the Northeastern region of the U.S. dropped and demand for gasoline remained robust. The national average also increased by a penny in the last week. AAA expects that gas prices should slowly decline once gasoline supplies grow and demand decreases. The gas price average in Maryland today is $2.47, which is up one cent in the last week, down seven cents in the last month and is 28 cents lower than on this date last year. Prices jumped two cents in Cumberland.  

Today’s national gas price average is $2.65, up a penny in the last week, unchanged in the last month and down 21 cents from this time last year.
