How gas prices have changed in Elizabethtown in the last week

Gasoline prices are sitting flat, on average, this week compared to last as Americans settle back into their routines following spring break travel in March.

Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern metros may still see gasoline prices rise higher, according to GasBuddy analyst Patrick De Haan. Retailers in those regions are still in the midst of their switchover to more expensive warm-weather fuel blends.

“Be prepared for somewhat of a punch,” De Haan said in a statement Monday.

The collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore could potentially impact prices over the next several months for consumers along the East Coast as logistics for transporting fuels were complicated by the loss of a key shipping corridor. Metros in California, Hawaii, Washington, and Nevada are experiencing the highest gas prices in the nation this week, according to AAA data.
