Gas Prices Drop 20 Cents

Find the cheapest gas in the Northampton Township area.

The average price of self-serve regular gas in Bucks and Montgomery Counties dropped nearly 20 cents since last month, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

Drivers are feeling relief at the pump across the country as gas prices continue to fall approaching the busy year-end holiday travel season. Prices are down 6.4 cents since last week and 15.1 cents higher than last year.

Prices have been driven lower by a number of factors, including the switch to winter-blend fuel—which is less expensive to produce—increased gasoline inventories, cheaper crude oil prices, lower demand and economic concerns. 

The national average for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline is $3.236; in Pennsylvania it’s $3.447 per gallon and in Bucks and Montgomery Counties it is $3.473.

Locally, the cheapest price for regular is $3.36 at the Quality gas station located at 288 York Rd., followed by $3.38 at the US Gas station at 228 E. Street Rd.

I bought gas in Ohio last week for $3.06 a gallon, for regular. Some stations were selling gas at $3.02. Too bad we are willing to spend so much more for gasoline here in SE PA.
