Price Of Gas Drops Slightly

For the first time since late April the average price for a gallon of regular gas in Pennsylvania is below $3 dollars a gallon. At $2.99 a gallon the statewide average price has fallen four cents in the past week. But with uncertainty over the outcome of the mid-term elections and with U.S. sanctions on Iran taking effect November 4th, Triple-A Mid-Atlantic spokesperson Kathleen Zinszer says the price of crude oil could go back up. With a drop in demand and the switch over to the “cheaper to produce” winter blend of gasoline, gas prices typically drop after Labor Day. But Zinszer says gas prices have remained relatively high this year due to the high price of crude.
