Holiday gas prices steady

May 23rd, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The unofficial start of summer is here and motorists are expected to pay the lowest price for gas in five years for the Memorial Day holiday.  The national average price for regular unleaded gasoline has increased for 36 of the past 37 days, reaching $2.74 per gallon on Friday.  Consumers are paying five cents per gallon more than one week ago and 26 cents more per gallon than one month ago.  Despite the national average continuing to register new highs for 2015, drivers are still experiencing significant yearly savings at the pump.  Friday’s average price is 91 cents less than last year.  Maryland’s average is seven cents lower than the national average at $2.67 per gallon, which is three cents more than last week’s price and 22 cents higher than a month ago.  However, the State average is nearly a dollar less than last year’s price on this date as motorists are saving 98 cents per gallon. In Cumberland, the price held steady from a week ago, at $2.70- but down a $1 and two cents from last year
