Gas prices drop for 10 straight weeks. Latest on prices around Philadelphia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — After 10 consecutive weeks of decline, people are happy that the price of regular gasoline is falling. But a dash of diesel production still hurts our pockets in other ways.

“I came all the way from Norristown to get gas up here,” said Marcy James, heading to City Avenue for gas prices of $3.99 a gallon.

“It’s still $4.29 in Norristown, $4.44 up,” said one driver.

According to the AAA, the national average for a gallon of regular alcohol is $3.89. However, Philadelphia is still more expensive at $4.22. New Jersey residents pay $4.01 a gallon. Delaware drivers pay the least, below the national average, at $3.79.

“Prices are down more than a dollar and we could see prices falling further,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at Gas Buddy.

But diesel supplies remain extremely tight in the US, bloating your budget elsewhere.

“The sky-high price of diesel is affecting everything that’s being delivered – things like groceries, everything you buy at retail,” De Haan said.

More expensive summer blended gasoline is being pumped right now. On September 16, the winter mix will be back in rotation.

“The switch to winter gasoline should help bring prices down to maybe 0.25 to 0.30 cents per gallon,” says De Haan.

All eyes will be on hurricane season. The Delaware Valley is heavily dependent on the Colonial Pipeline. Storms can affect the production of gas pumped to the Northeast.
