Gas prices dropped, on average, 6.3 cents in Pennsylvania and 4.5 cents in Bucks and Montgomery Counties from a week ago, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.
Nationally, the average price of self-serve gasoline is $3.810, down 4.9 cents from a week ago. Historically, gas prices tend to fall from September through Christmas. AAA expects this trend, which has held true for seven of the previous nine years, to continue in 2012 and predicts that the national average price will continue to fall as we approach the end of the year.
For the last several months, rising global crude oil prices have contributed to high gas prices, but that trend has recently reversed. Locally, the cheapest price for regular can be found at these locations:
- $3.77 at 7-Eleven, 2251 Veterans Highway
- $3.78 at 7021 New Falls Road
- $3.78 at Sunoco, 1155 Bristol Oxford Valley Road
