Warren leading region in gas prices

Gas prices fell two cents in the region this week.

But not in Warren.

The average for the western Pennsylvania fell two cents to $3.83.

But Warren leads the region at $3.999, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report.

The national average rose two cents this week to $3.83.

“The increase comes after a recent uptick in the price of oil, the primary ingredient in gasoline,” the report explained.

Also complicating prices was an uptick in demand and a decline in supply, according to data from the Energy Information Administration.

“The price of oil has increased amid news that Saudi Arabia plans to continue its voluntary 1 million barrels per day production cut through the end of the year,” according to the report.
