Gas prices shooting up

April 13th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Many local drivers continue to feel “taxed” at the pump as they watch prices increase for another week. Maryland’s average has increased 22 cents since last month. The triple threat of the switchover to summer-blend gasoline, the higher price of crude oil and continuing refinery maintenance season will offer no refunds to drivers filling up their tanks for another few weeks.  Maryland's gas price average is $2.71, which is up six cents in the last week, up 22 cents in the last month, and is three cents more than last year’s price.  

Today’s national gas price average is $2.81, which is up nine cents in the last week, up 32 cents in the last month, and is 12 cents more than last year’s price.
