Oil prices experienced a rare dropped this week, causing gas prices to decline about one cent per gallon, Maryland’s NBC25 News reported. Meanwhile, gas prices in Maryland are up about 20 cents compared to last month.
Retailers report that fluctuating gas prices have prompted some drivers to decrease their mileage and, regardless of frustrated customers, retailers are having to hike gas prices to sustain their businesses as oil prices rise.
Currently, gas prices in the state of Maryland are close to the national average at $2.70 per gallon-a dollar more than just one year ago.
Despite the small decline, numbers are not expected to drop anytime soon.
