Maryland has joined a club to which most don’t want to belong: States where the average gas price is $4 or more per gallon.
According to AAA Mid-Atlantic Thursday, Maryland’s average gas price hit $4 a gallon, or 6 cents than the national average. In Baltimore, motorists pay an average of $3.99 a gallon, down from $3.65 a year ago.
Caroline County, AAA reported.
On average, the most expensive region in the state is the Maryland suburbs outside Washington where drivers pay an average of $4.05 a gallon. That’s also Maryland’s record high price for gas, which was reached in June 2008.
Besides Maryland, D.C. and 10 other states now are paying an average of $4 or more a gallon. AAA said consumers can expect small increases in prices until the peak driving season in the summer.
