Prices at the Pump holding steady in Maryland

February 18th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Gas prices across Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region appear to be treading water as the consistent dip in prices seen for the past few weeks has begun to stall, ahead of the start to refinery maintenance season.  However, prices have remained relatively steady the past month as a result of the well-supplied crude oil market.

Today’s national average price of $2.29 is two cents more per gallon than one week ago, but remains lower than last month’s price, by five cents.  Prices continue to remain substantially higher than last year at this time, by 58 cents per gallon, when the cost at the pump was averaging less than $2.00 per gallon. 

Maryland’s average cost is on par with the national average, also at $2.29 per gallon, reflecting a three cents less increase from last week, but a decline of eight cents compared to last month’s price.  In Cumberland the price dropped a penny from last week and now sits at $2.42
