Gas prices on the rise

As the new work week begins, Delawareans will find their wallets a bit lighter while traveling to their job.

 

According to AAA Mid-Atlantic, the price of gas in Delaware rose four cents over the weekend, hitting an average of about $2.82 for a gallon of regular. Diesel rose two cents over the weekend to $3.12.

“One week into November, gas prices are holding steady, but how long will pump price stability last,” said Jana Tidwell, Public Affairs Specialist for AAA Mid-Atlantic.  “Crude oil prices reached 2010 highs last week, which will likely translate to slightly higher gas prices in the week ahead, as gas prices typically follow crude oil trends.”

On a national level, the gas average rose three cents over the weekend to $2.85, while diesel rose three cents as well over the weekend to $3.12.
