Gasoline price dips to $1.77 in parts of the Valley

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Unless you live in Mercer County, chances are that you are paying less than two dollars per gallon when you fill up the tank of your car, SUV or truck in the Mahoning Valley.

If prices hold through next week, some drivers in the valley will be paying more than a dollar less per gallon than they did last year to drive to grandma’s house for Thanksgiving and to fuel up for Black Friday shopping.

A survey of prices from gasbuddy.com shows that most gas stations in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana Counties are selling regular for under the two dollar mark.

The biggest gas bargains can be found in the Columbiana County Community of Lisbon, where regular can be found for $1.77, which is 38 cents below the current national average of $2.15.

Coming up second are the gas stations along Market Street in the city of Youngstown that have dropped prices fifteen cents over the past two days, now selling regular for $1.79.

Just across the state line, drivers continue to feel the pain at the pump.  People in Hermitage and Sharon are paying about $2.15 a gallon. Prices are twenty cents higher in Mercer and Greenville.

Triple A's Gas Gauge lists the average price of regular in the Youngstown-Warren area is $1.98, which is sixteen cents cheaper than a week ago, and 23 cents lower than prices from last month.

Earlier this week, AAA reported that pump prices have fallen for ten consecutive days. The auto club says that refinery production in the Midwest appears to be recovering, which should help improve prices in the region.

Historically, gasoline demand tends to decline during the month of November, and with the autumn refinery maintenance season nearing completion, pump prices are expected to move lower to close out the year, barring any unanticipated outages or supply disruptions.
