Gas prices in Harrisburg are more than (dollar)1 higher than they were a year ago.

According to GasBuddy.com, gas prices in the Harrisburg area have increased by 5 cents per gallon in the last week.

The current average price in central Pennsylvania is (dollar)3.61 per gallon, which is (dollar)1.16 higher than a year ago.

However, according to GasBuddy, the national average gas price has dropped 2.6 cents to (dollar)3.40 per gallon.

The price per gallon is (dollar)1.28 higher than a year ago.

“As of Sunday evening, the national average gasoline price had dropped for the first time in months.

“Motorists are likely to see the declines continuing into this week,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “As the price of oil continues to struggle, Covid cases flare up, and anxiety over demand rises, motorists are likely to see the declines continue into this week.”

“While it’s unclear how long market conditions will keep driving down gas prices, it appears that the fall will last until Thanksgiving, just in time for millions of Americans to get ready to travel for the holiday.”

The damage, on the other hand, may have already been done.

According to GasBuddy’s Thanksgiving Travel Survey, which will be released tomorrow, “a significant portion of Americans have already re-thought their plans due to high gas prices.”

The national average, according to AAA, is (dollar)3.41.

“A slight drop in gas demand, possibly due to seasonal driving habits changes, is contributing to some price relief at the pump,” said AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross.

“Unfortunately, the continued scarcity of crude oil will likely keep gas prices fluctuating rather than falling for a long time.”

Pennsylvania was among the top ten states with the highest week-over-week increases.

Pennsylvania also has the nation’s highest gas taxes.

Sunoco on Walnut Street in Harrisburg has the best price in the Harrisburg area today: (dollar)3.23 per gallon.

Sam’s Club in State College has the best deal in Pennsylvania at (dollar)3.12.
