BALTIMORE (WJZ) —  Gas prices at Maryland pumps have fluctuated last week as demand increases and crude oil prices drop, AAA Mid-Atlantic said in a statement.

The average gas price is $3.07, which is down two cents from last week, but up seven cents from last month and more than 80 cents this time last year.
