Gas Prices Decrease in Pa. This Week


January 30, 2020

The average price of gasoline across Western Pennsylvania is seven cents cheaper this week at $2.764 per gallon, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report.

All states in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast region saw gas prices decrease on the week. These five states saw the largest declines at the pump in the region and nation: Pennsylvania (-6 cents), Delaware (-5 cents), North Carolina (-5 cents), Maryland (-5 cents) and West Virginia (-4 cents).

Pump price declines are likely to extend through the end of the month as gasoline stocks continue to grow in the region. With a 100,000-barrel build, regional gasoline stocks sit at 65.3 million barrels.

Gasoline stocks have been steadily building since mid-November, paving the way for cheaper gas prices for the region.

This week’s average prices: Western Pennsylvania Average – $2.764

Average price during the week of January 20, 2020 – $2.838

Average price during the week of January 28, 2019 – $2.471
