Gas Prices Jump nearly 20 Cents in a Week

Find the cheapest gas in Upper Southampton.

The average price for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Bucks and Montgomery spiked 17.8 cents since last week, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

That increase since last Monday is the most dramatic one-week spike in nearly two years, the report states.  The price surge was largely the result of higher crude oil prices and the “rubber-banding” of midcontinent retail gasoline prices, which fell dramatically to end the year and are now swinging back up.

Locally, the price per gallon average is $3.670. The national average went up 16.9 cents  from a week ago to $3.533 and the Pennsylvania average increased 13.7 cents to $3.670.

Nearby, the cheapest price for regular is $3.60 at Southampton BP, 912 Street Rd.

Gee... Bush, Cheyney and all those nasty "oil men" have been gone for over 4 years.... Gas was under $2 a gallon when Barry took office and prices have climbed ever since. Right now, prices are higher for this time of year than they have ever been and "summer driving season" is still months away. And Barry has yet to lift a finger or even utter a single syllable of protest to the oil companies rape of the American public. I guess Bush wasn't the problem after all.... NOW WHAT"S HIS EXCUSE...???
