Pittsburgh gas prices hold steady as rises seen in all states
Drivers in the Pittsburgh area got a break from rising gas prices, but that wasn’t the case across the state and nation.
Average gas prices in Pittsburgh did not change over the past week, remaining at $2.76 per gallon, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 731 stations.
That’s 12.3 cents per gallon more than a month ago, but 2.3 cents per gallon less than a year ago.
Prices in Pittsburgh range from a low of $2.52 per gallon up to $2.89 a gallon. Statewide, the lowest per-gallon price is $2.48 while the highest is $3.09.
The national average has gone up 6.5 cents per gallon in the past week to an average of $2.62. It’s up 22.2 cents per gallon from a month ago, and 2.1 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.
The cheapest price in the country is $1.12 per gallon, while the most expensive is $5.04.
“Gasoline prices have increased in all 50 states in the last week as refineries continue working toward cleaner, more expensive gasoline and as oil prices have continued creeping higher,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.
