Maryland Gas Prices Expected to Rise

January 7th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

Look for pump prices, which have increased steadily from just before Christmas, to continue an upward climb. Current average in Maryland is $3.39 for regular, a 4 cent increase in the last week, reports. Those prices are expected to continue to go up, reflecting the rise in crude oil prices and the increase as refineries switch to mandated summer blends. The fiscal cliff issue also has put pressure on gasoline prices as the national debt policies tend to elevate the price of oil on international markets, according to Greg Laskowski, an oil industry analyst.
