More than one month after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, Maryland motorists are finally seeing consistent relief at the pump.

The price plunged 9 cents in Cumberland, down to $2.52. Maryland’s average cost at the pump is pricing a nickel per gallon less than the national average at $2.52 per gallon.
