Pa. Gas Prices Up 18 Cents From Last Month

The current national average is $3.667 per gallon.

The cost of a gallon of self-service gas in Pennsylvania is up an average of 18 cents over last month.

A gallon of gas costs an average of $3.809 in the state, up 3.7 cents from last week, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report. That's also up 36.3 cents over the same week in 2013.

The AAA Fuel Gauge Report breaks out the specific markets of the Lehigh Valley and the Philadelphia area.

In the Lehigh Valley, the average price for a gallon of self-serve was $3.768, the same as last week. However, the average is up 15.4 cents over last month and 34.9 cents over last year.

In Philadelphia, the average price per gallon was $3.778, 0.3 cents lower than last week. (Fill up the tank!) But still 12.6 cents higher than last month and 31.3 cents higher than last year.

The current national average is $3.667 per gallon.

No problem. I responded before but looks like it slipped into internet oblivion. I think the pipeline will be a boon for our country but won't have a huge impact on gas prices. I think we will have issues with Russia before we do with Iran. I could be wrong, that's my take at the moment though

Responds/reply isn't working for me and Patch as well. My instincts tell me that issues with Russia and Iran may become (if not already) identical. Who knows if Korea as a China puppet joins the dance. If Rome, I mean the US, is in obvious decline, we can look for all kinds of instability, all tactically done by those who have US's worst interest's at heart. I always am amazed that Nazis and Samuaris got into bed. It is that common enemy thing you don't expect. That seems how history goes down.

Gas prices probably will not go up significantly, because we've seen in the past that right around $4/gal is where people start to change their behavior. When people start carpooling, working from home and generally driving less, demand will go down and prices will fall. People will then revert to their old ways and the cycle will start again. Oil is a global commodity, but in any individual region you can only charge what the market will gear.

Combine Corbett's big gas tax increase with the summer fuel prices and we'll be lucky to find any gas at $4.
