Gas prices not falling yet

Summer driving season may be over, but gas prices are showing no signs of retreat.  Gas prices are not following the usual September trend of falling after the end of the summer vacation season.  Delaware’s gas average is up eight cents over the past week at $3.85.  The national average is $3.86, a three cent increase over the past week.
