AAA: Gas Prices Stabilizing in Virginia

September 9, 2012

Gas prices remained stable in Virginia over the last week but are expected to begin retreating.

In Virginia, AAA Mid-Atlantic says the price of a gallon of regular gasoline now averages $3.69 statewide. That's the same as last week and 20 cents higher than a year ago.

Gas prices range from about $3.61 in the Charlottesville area to $3.67 in the Roanoke metro area and $3.68 in the Norfolk area. Prices averaged $3.65 in the Richmond area.

The auto club says that compares with an average price at the pump nationwide of $3.83 per gallon.

Officials with AAA say prices are expected to decline as demand decreases with the end of the summer driving season and the end of hurricane season. Refineries also are switching to less expensive winter-blend gasoline.
