Area Gas Prices to Continue to Fall Through New Year

| November 16, 2013 | 0 Comments | News

According to AAA, western Prince William gas prices are expected to continue to fall for the remainder of the year.

“Ample supplies and decreased demand, coupled with less expensive seasonal gasoline and crude oil prices below $100 per barrel, all combine to push gas prices lower,” they said.

The average gas prices in western Prince William County rose slightly in the past week; however, experts see an overall drop in prices in the short term.

Residents can currently find prices ranging from $3.09 in Nokesville to over $3.25 in Gainesville.

The national average price for regular grade gasoline fell to $3.21 Friday, which is seven cents lower than one week ago and the lowest price of 2013.

“Prices at the pump continue to drop to the lowest levels seen this year,” said Martha M. Meade, Manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “AAA expects the national average price at the pump will drop to as low as $3.10 per gallon before the end of the year and many consumers will enjoy local prices below $3 per gallon as the holidays draw near.”
