Prices at the pump may be ready to stop dropping

May 9th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The free fall in local pump prices may be coming to an end as re-opening begins in many states means more demand for gas. While Maryland prices have shown little movement, if at all, in the last week, enough states across the country have seen price increases, pushing the national gas price average up by five cents since last Friday.

 

The gas price average in Maryland today is $1.86, which is down respectively one cent in the last week, 11 cents in the last month, and 95 cents from this date last year. Maryland’s statewide average has been under $2 for five weeks.

 

Today’s national gas price average is $1.82, up five cents in the last week and down respectively eight cents in the last month and $1.06 from this time last year.
