Gas prices on the rise, but dropping in Cumberland

September 14th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Across most of Maryland this week, the drop has stopped at the pump. An increase in crude oil prices and a drop in gasoline inventories along the East Coast are pushing prices up in some areas. This is typically a time when late summer/early fall decreased demand (ahead of the switchover to winter blend gasoline) usually pushes prices lower. Despite the increases, Maryland drivers are still paying almost 40 cents less per gallon than just one year ago.

 

The gas price average in Maryland today is $2.44, which is up three cents in the last week, down 13 cents in the last month and is 39 cents lower than on this date last year.

 

Today’s national gas price average is $2.57, unchanged in the last week, down seven cents in the last month and down 28 cents from this time last year.
