Spike in Gas Prices

400px-WaynePump-smMotorists continue to see gas prices rise, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. The current national average for regular gas is $3.782, and last month’s average was $3.347. While there was a short drop in prices over the weekend, it appears that the price of gas might be headed up again.

Prices are reportedly not expected to drop much until Labor Day. Currently many US refineries are performing seasonal maintenance and switching to summer blend gasoline, resulting in a price increase. This changeover period causes some refineries to go on hiatus for some time, resulting in a decrease in supply. Additionally, turmoil in the Middle East adds to the increasing has prices.

As of today, here are some of the best gas prices in your area:

Havertown– $3.73 at Sunoco on 400 E Township Line Rd & Meadowbrook Rd

Drexel Hill– $3.71 at Shell on 2806 Township Line (US-1) & Agnew Dr & Bryan St
