Local gas prices decreasing ahead of Thanksgiving holiday travel

Nov 19, 2019

Just over a week before the busy Thanksgiving travel holiday, local gas prices are dropping - as they typically do during the fall months. 

AAA Mid-Atlantic says Delaware, Philadelphia and South Jersey all fell by at least a penny last week, thanks to an increase in gasoline supplies on the East coast, a drop in gasoline demand and stable crude oil prices. 

But AAA notes price fluctuations remain possible through the end of the month.

A price for a gallon of regular in Delaware today (Tuesday) will cost you $2.37 - down 8-cents over the last week. In the Philadelphia area, the price sits at $2.75, while in South Jersey prices range from $2.51 to $2.58 in New Jersey. The price in Maryland is $2.47.

The average price nationally is $2.59, down two cents in the last week, and four cents from a month ago.
