Gas prices aren't so bad, compared to last year

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

On Friday, the average for a gallon of regular gasoline in the Harrisburg area was about $3.38.

Everyone would like to pay less, but it's not so bad when you remember that gas was $3.60 last month and $3.80 last year.

So how long will the price dip last? It sounds like gas prices won't go much lower in the near future, but they also won't be going up much higher either. According to AAA, our gas prices peaked earlier this year.

"We paid the price then, but we are reaping that reward right now," AAA Central Penn spokesperson Dorie Weik said. "We are going to see this lower price for a little bit longer than we normally do. We should be good probably to the end of June, beginning of July."

That's great news for Harrisburg resident Jaimie Foster.

"I will be traveling a little bit more. My family will see me in Pittsburgh then if that is the case," Foster said. "Fingers crossed, because usually Memorial Day it goes higher."

On Friday, the national average for a gallon of regular was about $3.52. Last month it was $3.64 and last year it was $3.80. In Pennsylvania, the average Friday was $3.45, $3.65 last month,  and $3.84 last year.
