Pennsylvania Gas Prices Decline, But Remain Higher than National


Staff Writer 

Consumers have faced steep gas prices throughout the past year, as demand continues to rebound in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic and as a result of sanctions on Russian imports while the war in Ukraine continues to rage. As of June 15, the average price of gas per gallon in the United States is $3.589, a 5 cent increase from one month ago.

Here in Pennsylvania the price of gas per gallon has decreased slightly to $3.648, a 1 cent per gallon decrease compared to one week ago, and a $1.388 per gallon decrease from one year ago.
