I haven’t messed about with checking gas prices for several days, because they have remained fairly stable.
Nevertheless, I drove to Pine View Farm yesterday, to take care of some family business and visit my mother in the home. I tracked the gas prices on my drive down. I started at Wilmington, Delaware, and ended up on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Along the way, I passed through the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I returned along a different route through Maryland and lower Delaware.
In Delaware, gas prices were in the mostly in the high two dollar range, but with a wide variation. Prices in Maryland were the lowest I saw; Virginia prices tended to be in between Delaware and Maryland prices.
These prices were sampled along US 13.
