Virginia’s gas prices were unchanged in the past week, averaging $2.93/g today, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 4,081 stations in the commonwealth, and are 1.7 cents per lower than they were a month ago. They are still $1.04/g higher than they were a year ago, however.
According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Virginia was priced at $2.63/g Monday while the most expensive was $4.29/g, a difference of $1.66/g.
The national average price of gasoline rose 1.6 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.07/g as of Monday. The national average is up 3.7 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 97.7 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.
“We’ve seen the national average gas price continue to inch higher as oil prices have reached $71 per barrel, the highest since 2018, as gasoline demand continues to rebound,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “Strong gasoline demand as states and cities reopen will likely continue to be a major factor keeping gas prices elevated even as oil production climbs in the months ahead,” De Haan said. “With most additional supply being gobbled up very quickly, gas prices will likely stay at elevated levels for the foreseeable future. Motorists can continue to fight the high gas prices by remembering to shop around each time they get below half a tank.”
