Gas prices jump in Cumberland

August 5th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

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

While the national average price for gasoline remained relatively steady this week, pump prices in some areas across the country, including parts of Maryland, continue to climb higher even though many market experts continue to believe that gas prices are nearing a seasonal high.  The nationwide average price is $2.80 per gallon, up a penny on the week and nine cents more than one month ago, but is 88 cents lower compared to the same time last year. Maryland’s average price is $2.77 per gallon, which is four cents higher from last week and 10 cents more than last month’s price, yet 89 cents less than a year ago on this date. In Cumberland, after dropping in recent weeks, the price  skyrocketed nine cents in the past seven days up to $2.75 a gallon
