“It was a dizzying time as gas prices surged ahead of summer, which caused many Americans to re-think their summer travel plans, only for the longest decline in gas prices since the pandemic to start providing meaningful relief,” Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy said. “As the sun sets on summer, gas prices are in far more familiar territory and could continue to decline well into fall, barring major disruptions from hurricanes and the likes.”
The average for Pennsylvania is $4.07/g. Current Midstate average gas prices range from $4.01/g in Perry County to $4.19/g in Juniata County, which is according to the AAA Gas Map.
GasBuddy says that the decline in gallons pumped in recent weeks advises that seasonal trends continue to push demand down for the unofficial close of summer.
