Delaware gas prices hold steady

Gas prices in Delaware remain relatively flat for the second consecutive week, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic. 
As of Sunday, the average price for a gallon of gasoline in Delaware was $3.50, down from $3.51 a week earlier.  The stable trend is in sharp contrast to the price of crude, which fluctuates in reaction to daily developments in the Middle East, north Africa and Japan.  AAA says it’s difficult to make short-term predictions because of this volatility, but it’s possible the price of gas may reach $3.75 per gallon in April, the traditional start of the peak driving season.
