Gas prices jump 7 cents in a week in Cumberland

May 30th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Since Memorial Day, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by just one cent. The statewide gas price average in Maryland increased two cents on the week, but is 74 cents lower than one year ago. According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gasoline demand increased last week, coupled with a 700,000 barrel decrease in total domestic stocks. The national average holding steady means that gas demand and supply are largely in sync, which will likely help to stabilize pump prices for motorists.

 

The gas price average in Maryland today is $2.01, which is up respectively two cents in the last week and 13 cents in the last month, but down 74 cents from this date last year.

 

Today’s national gas price average is $1.97, up three cents in the last week, up 21 cents in the last month and down 84 cents from this time last year.
