WASHINGTON (AP) — Motorists in the Mid-Atlantic region are seeing higher prices at the pump for the third week in a row.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in the D.C. metro area is $3.48 this week. That’s compared to $3.41 a week ago.
Still, motorists in the region are paying less than a year ago. At this time last year drivers were paying $3.73 per gallon.
The price of gas in the region is a penny less than the national average.
