Gas Prices Down Nationally, Up Locally

 

Despite an average 3-cent drop in gas prices nationally, locally, prices rose about 2 cents from last week, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

In Montgomery and Bucks counties, the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline is $3.929 per gallon, which is up 1.6 cents from a week ago, 10 cents higher than a month ago and 39.6 cents higher than a year ago.

The report does state that crude oil prices continue to fall as we move into colder weather. Crude oil, what gasoline is made from, dropped from a $99 a barrel high in September, to below $90 a barrel last week.

Locally, the cheapest price for regular is $3.80 at the the gas station in the 4300 block of New Falls Road.
