Three of the six gas stations being tracked week-to-week by Upper Dublin Patch lowered the cost of their regular gas.
The average price for a gallon of regular at these six gas stations dipped by a nickel over last week to $3.71. Last week, the prices dropped by $0.04 — so the local prices for regular gas are comparable to the national average, according to AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report. They weren’t several weeks ago.
The local average cost for a gallon of premium also dropped, but only by about 2 cents, brining it to a still-over-four-dollar $4.02. That figure is seven cents higher than the national average and ten cents higher than the Philadelphia average.
Cumberland Farms is selling the cheapest regular gas at $3.56, though Sunoco isn’t far behind at $3.57. Sunoco is the only gas station to raise its prices week-over-week, but only did so by a penny.
And cheap premium can be had at the Sunoco. It’s going for $3.89, the same as it was last week.
Lukoil is still selling the most expensive gas of both grades. Regular gas is 0.18 higher than the local average and premium is $0.21 cents higher.
Shell and 7-Eleven both reined their prices in this week. 7-Eleven dropped the prices of both grades of gas by $0.16 over last week; Shell lowered the price of its regular gas by $0.16 and lowered its premium gas by a dime.Gas Station Regular, March 19 Premium, March 19 Difference Over Last Week, Regular/Premium Cumberland Farms, Limekiln Pike $3.56 $3.91 no change Sunoco, Dreshertown Road and Limekiln Pike 3.57 3.89 + 0.01 / no change Exxon, Limekiln Pike and Norristown Road 3.89 4.19 no change Shell, Butler and Bethlehem pikes 3.63 3.99 - 0.16 / - 0.10 7-Eleven, Butler and Bethlehem pikes 3.63 4.19 - 0.16 / - 0.16 Lukoil, Pennsylvania Avenue and Bethlehem Pike 3.99 4.29 - 0.04 / - 0.03 Average 3.71 4.08 - 0.05 / - 0.02 Philadelphia Average 3.68 3.98 - 0.01 / - 0.03 National Average 3.69 4.01
