Gas Prices Down Again at the Pump in Columbia

Still, almost two months after the Category 4 hurricane made landfall in Texas and triggered widespread cost spikes, prices remain well above normal for late October.

The national average dropped 12 cents per gallon the last four weeks but is still 22.2 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

Those were the days - or years, to be precise - when gas prices routinely were above $3.00 a gallon. In Lancaster County, the most recent $3.00 gas price occurred November 6, 2014.

When Harvey swamped oil refineries and pipelines on the Gulf Coast, prices here quickly surged 42 cents, from $2.46 a gallon to $2.88 a gallon, according to GasBuddy. In Mississippi, the statewide average peaked at $2.49 about two weeks after the hurricane and have been declining since, Redman said.

Gas inventories are continuing to increase after Hurricane Harvey.

DeHaan attributed the price disparity to Pennsylvania having the nation's highest gas tax at 58.2 cents a gallon.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Targeted by Car Thief
TMZ reports that the decision to arm West and Kardashian's security team with guns was in direct response to the Paris robbery . Security officials spotted the guy and chased him away, but not before his image was captured on surveillance footage.

Retail prices remain about 5-10 cents higher than where they should be.

"Motorists should expect another round of discounts at the pump this week", AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said. Meanwhile, Idaho prices have dropped six cents per gallon.

That results in rocky gas prices in the Orlando area. Meanwhile, oil prices gained nearly a dollar last week after the EIA reported a 5.7 million barrel decline in oil supply and a 1 million barrel drop in production.

“Barring significant changes to the current climate, AAA projects that fuel prices will continue to fall in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, ” Conde said.

But prices might keep heading downward a little longer, said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, a price-tracking website that monitors 147 gas stations here. The national average has been below $3 per gallon for close to three years in part because of lower crude oil prices, which are still about half what they were in 2014.
