First State drivers saw another slight increase at the gas pump last week
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average cost of a gallon of regular rose two cents over the past seven days – from $2.22 to $2.24.
The price is now up six cents over the past month.
But you can still find some significantly lower prices around New Castle County where Delawaregasprices.com reports nearly a dozen stations are charging $2.09 or less.
And the gap between what motorists are paying now and what they paid a year ago is shrinking - a year ago the average price for a gallon of regular stood at $1.85.
AAA says steady crude oil prices has helped keep the price increases to a minimum, but seasonal refinery maintenance and the switch to summer blend gasoline will likely reverse this trend in the coming weeks.
The national average currently sits at $2.30.
