Texas Weekly Fuel Update and Outlook | 14 days ago

Average gasoline prices in the Pittsburgh region increased one cent over the last week and sit at $2.89 a gallon, according to price-tracking website GasBuddy.

But drivers locally are paying two cents more that the national average, which stands at $2.67, and 59 cents more than a year ago when the price in DE stood at $2.10. Still, prices Sunday were nearly 33¢ higher than the same day past year and up 23.5¢ from a month prior.

State of Tennessee- $2.59, up 2.9 cents per gallon from last week's $2.56.

Omaha- $2.60/g, up 2.5 cents per gallon from last week's $2.57/g.

$1.99/g in 2016, $2.06/g in 2015, $3.19/g in 2014, $3.35/g in 2013 and $3.64/g in 2012.

Huntsville- $2.49/g, up 3.7 cents per gallon from last week's $2.45/g.

The last week was a return to normalcy for Pittsburgh gasoline market after a 24-cent increase recorded from August 29 to September 5 - the largest weekly spike in the region recorded since GasBuddy began keeping detailed data in 2007.

DeHaan said the US average price peaked last Thursday "and is beginning to slowly decline for the time being". They say motorists shouldn't expect to see any impact from Irma on gasoline prices due to the path being a considerable distance from sensitive areas of the energy sector.

Gas prices in northern New England have gone up a bit more in the last week, but may have peaked as refineries return to production following Hurricane Harvey.

GasBuddy is the technology company changing the way more than 70 million consumers find, purchase, and save money on gasoline.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that the jump in gas prices in the past couple of weeks is the biggest price hike recorded by the Lundberg Survey since 2011.
