How gas prices have changed in Elizabethtown in the last week

The price of oil is now at the lowest it’s been in almost a year, according to U.S. crude oil futures. And the cost of gas at the pump continues to fall despite a busy holiday travel season.

That’s in part due to market uncertainty over riots breaking out in China over the country’s strict Covid-19 lockdown policies. The protests have disrupted production of goods including Apple’s iPhone 14, and threaten to bring back heightened demand for gasoline among the Chinese population that could raise prices further.

A gallon of gas was $3.55 on average nationwide on Monday, November 28, according to AAA. That’s about $0.12 lower than prices were this time last week.
