Labor Day Gas Prices hold steady in Cumberland

September 3rd, 2016 by WCBC Radio

While pump prices have been rising over the last several weeks due to higher crude oil prices, refinery issues in the Gulf Coast, and tropical weather systems in the Gulf of Mexico, drivers are on track to pay the lowest Labor Day gas prices. Today’s national average price of $2.22 per gallon is an increase of one penny per gallon compared to one week ago, nine cents per gallon compared to one month ago, but 23 cents less than last year.

Maryland’s average at the pump is on par with the nationwide price at $2.22 per gallon.  The state average is two cents higher than last week’s price, 12 cents more than a month ago, yet 17 cents per gallon lower than this time last year.
