Gasoline prices steady in W. Pa.
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Western Pennsylvania gas prices remain unchanged this week as they continue to hover at $3.523 per gallon, AAA says.
A year ago, the average price in Western Pennsylvania was $3.465 per gallon.
The current national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.30, unchanged from a week ago and 4 cents more than last month, but 9 cents less than the average price one year ago.
Crude oil prices have traded in a narrow range to begin the year, as ample product inventories in most parts of the country and continued weak demand have offset upward pressure from a weaker U.S. dollar and some positive economic news.
Utah drivers are paying the least in the country at $2.84; Hawaii is the highest at $4.06 followed by New York, $3.737.
Average price of unleaded self-serve gasoline around Western Pennsylvania include:
Altoona $3.594; Bradford $3.497; Brookville $3.370; Butler $3.502; Clarion $3.517; DuBois $3.423; Erie $3.384; Indiana $3.598; Kittanning $3.591; Meadville $3.590; Mercer $3.600; New Castle $3.357; New Kensington $3.561; Pittsburgh $3.524; Sharon $3.582; Warren $3.457.
