Gas Prices Jump in Cumberland

January 20th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Local and national gas prices continue to trend upward, despite the traditional dip drivers are accustomed to seeing following the first of the year. The unwelcome news for motorists is that there may not be much in the way of a break in pump prices between now and the start of refinery maintenance season in early spring. Today’s national gas price average is $2.54, unchanged from last week but 12 cents higher than last month and 21 cents per gallon more than last year’s price on this date. Maryland’s average is two cents higher than the national average at $2.56 per gallon, which is two cents higher than last week, 15 cents more than last month, and 21 cents higher than last year on this date. In Cumberland prices jumped five cents, up to $2.63

Just a month ago to the day, the Fourth of July holiday, motorists were paying the lowest gas prices for 2017 and the lowest for the holiday in 12 years.  Flash forward to today and most drivers are paying price increases of ten cents per gallon or more since the holiday, although the rise in far Western Maryland is not as significant. Today’s national average is $2.34 per gallon. This price is four cents more than one week ago, 11 cents higher than last months’ price and 22 cents per gallon more than last year on this date. Maryland’s average cost at the pump is a penny higher than the national average at $2.35 per gallon.  The state’s cost reflects a seven cent increase from a week ago, a 14 cent increase compared to last month’s price and a 26 cent per gallon rise over last year’s price. Cumberland prices jumped four cents from last week and now stand at $2.38
