Prices at the pump falling

February 15th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Drivers are feeling the love as they fill up this Valentine’s Day. Many local prices dropped again this week as oil prices remained lower, gas inventories on the East Coast increased slightly and demand for gasoline stayed at a typical lower wintertime level. Optimism over the possible peak of the coronavirus’ spread caused a spike in oil and gas prices earlier in the week, reaching some gas pumps in Maryland on Friday. However, until the international public health threat declines and China recovers from the virus’ impacts, crude prices are likely to remain lower.

 

The gas price average in Maryland today is $2.33, which is the same as last week, down 19 cents in the last month, and up 11 cents from this date last year.

 

Today’s national gas price average is $2.43, down respectively a penny in the last week and 14 cents in the last month, and up 15 cents from this time last year.

    What is it going to take to get attorney general Frost to do his damn job? This is obvious price gouging on the part of Sheetz’s.
