Local gas prices drop by a dime in week

Local gas prices drop by a dime in week

Prices have declined 38 consecutive days for a total of about 30 cents. "Perhaps even more wild is that the national average has now remained under $3 per gallon for almost three years". The highest was about $2.63 per gallon in the Jackson area.

It's taken a bit longer than expected, but gasoline prices are returning to their pre-Hurricane Harvey levels, according to Don Redman of AAA.

When Harvey swamped oil refineries and pipelines on the Gulf Coast, prices here quickly surged 42 cents, from $2.46 a gallon to $2.88 a gallon, according to GasBuddy.

"While the national average [price for gas] may drift slightly lower in the week ahead, higher oil prices may soon put a stop to the streak", the report read.

DeHaan attributed the price disparity to Pennsylvania having the nation's highest gas tax at 58.2 cents a gallon.

"Motorists should expect another round of discounts at the pump this week", said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group.

The average retail price for a gallon of gasoline in the United States has been on a steady decline for most markets through October, following seasonal trends. In nearby San Bernardino and Riverside, prices dropped to $2.94 per gallon and $2.97 per gallon respectively.

Now that gasoline production, shipments and inventories are being restored, prices have retreated 33 cents, though they've come down much slower than they went up.

In some cases, in fact, the prices in the Golden Triangle are even lower than the statewide average of $2.12 on August 28.

Gas prices in Lancaster County have been extremely volatile over the past decade.

DeHaan said prices "may continue to decline for a few weeks before leveling off as gasoline inventories continue to heal after Harvey". "Perhaps even more wild is that the national average has now remained under $3 per gallon for almost 3 years, or 1,087 days as the days of cheap oil have continued".
