Gas Prices Start to Fall Across the Mid-Atlantic Region

September 10th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Prices nationally and across the Mid-Atlantic region started to fall on Labor Day weekend and continue to trend downward. Today’s national average price of $2.18 per gallon is a decrease of four cents per gallon compared to one week ago, but six cents per gallon higher compared to one month ago.  However, yearly savings continue with the national average 20 cents per gallon less than last year.

As of Friday, averages across several states in the region have already fallen close to or below $2.00 per gallon. New Jersey ($1.98) has the fourth lowest average in the nation and Virginia ($2.00), has the sixth lowest average in the nation.  However, Maryland remains above this benchmark with today’s current average price at $2.18 per gallon, which is on par with the national average price.  The state average is four cents per gallon lower than last week’s price but 10 cents higher than last month.  However, as with motorists across the country, Marylanders continue to save year-over-year at the pump as today’s average reflects an 18 cents decrease compared to this date last year.
