The price at the pump continues to rise in Delaware, where gas now sells for an average of $3.73 a gallon.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the cost of filling up has risen for the third week in a row. Until about June 30th, the price had been declining after reaching a peak close to $4-per gallon in early May. AAA Mid-Atlantic’s Jana Tidwell says “anaylsts continue to believe gas prices will remain below $4 a gallon in the near term.” The average price in Delaware a year ago was $2.64. The recent increase has been driven by higher costs of crude. CLICK HERE to track gas prices in your town or neighborhood through AAA’s Fuel Price Finder.
