Gas Prices Drop Ever So Slightly

Find the cheapest gas in Newtown.

The see-saw gas prices saw an overall 3.5-cent increase in the United States last week, but a very slight drop locally, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

In the Bucks and Montgomery Counties, the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline is $3.927 per gallon, which is .2 cents lower from a week ago, 7.9 cents higher than a month ago and 44.4 cents higher than a year ago.

This skewing of national prices started last week in California, the report states, when the average price for a gallon in that state hit $4.671. Low supplies, plus a power outage at an Exxon refinery prevented it from producing gas, caused that nearly 50-cent hike.

Crude oil prices, however, continues to drop as global demand weakens.

Locally, the cheapest price for regular is $4.07 at Kerrigan’s Sunoco.
