Pump prices continue to dip across Maryland this week, as the state average is down 14 cents since August 1. AAA forecasts that the majority of motorists in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region will likely find savings of potentially 25 cents/gallon compared to the average gas price this summer.

The gas price average in Maryland today is $2.51, which is down three cents in the last week, 18 cents in the last month and is 27 cents lower than on this date last year.  Cumberland prices dropped seven cents in the past week, but at $2.70 a gallon remain the highest in the state.

 

Today’s national gas price average is $2.60, down respectively three cents in the last week, 15 cents in the last month and 23 cents from this time last year. AAA forecasts the national average to drop to $2.40 or lower this fall.
