Delaware drivers are finally getting some relief at the gas pump.
After jumping 30 cents over the past month, AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price for a gallon of regular in Delaware dropped this week.
It’s now at $2.70 – down seven cents from a week ago.
And Delawaregasprices.com reports over a dozen stations across the state have prices at $2.57 or lower. Most were in Newark, Dover and Rehoboth Beach.
AAA says increased supplies of gasoline along the East Coast, along with crude oil prices slipping below $63 this week, helped end the upward trend.
Prices in Delaware remain the lowest in the region. Motorists in the Philadelphia area are paying $3.03 a gallon. The price in South Jersey is at $2.87 and in Maryland it sits around $2.79.
The national average for a gallon of regular is $2.87.
