Gas Prices Decline in Four-State Area

Gas Prices Decline in Four-State Area

"I hope they say down and stay consistent and I think it'll help everybody out around the holidays especially if it does," said Douglas Keefer, Martinsburg resident.
WHAG NEWS - Gas prices are declining nationwide and around the four-state area. AAA officials say prices haven't been this low since December 2011.

AAA official Christine Delise said lower crude oil prices, sufficient supplies and lack of a hurricane season helped with price decline. Also, winter blends are cheaper to produce.

Gas prices have gone down nearly 20 cents across the four-state area since last year. WHAG talked to residents about the decline and they hope gas prices stay consistent. 

"I drive about 60 miles a day so obviously anything helps and you know the past couple of years in been a real stretch. I've actually had to buy a new car just to help deal with the gas prices, something with better mileage," said Christopher Banzhoff, Hagerstown resident. "So I'm definitely glad to see it starting to drop."

"I'm hoping they stay down because this is getting a little bit ridiculous all the time paying for gas," said Patricia Collins, Hagerstown resident.

"I hope they say down and stay consistent and I think it'll help everybody out around the holidays especially if it does," said Douglas Keefer, Martinsburg resident.

AAA officials say they don't anticipate gas prices to increase during the holiday season. In fact, they say the decline could continue.
