Gas prices remain above $3 a gallon


Despite a decline in crude oil prices, the price at the pump remained above $3 a gallon on Tuesday morning, Wilmington-based AAA-Mid Atlantic reported.

Delaware’s average gas price rose to $3.07, up eight cents during the past week.

The price of crude oil remained around $70 a barrel on Tuesday after a rough day in the financial markets on Monday.

Discounted prices were available in Kent and New Castle counties, with a Citgo and an unbranded station in Middletown, posted a $2.86 a gallon price for regular. Prices are subject to change. 

AAA reported that gas prices are up due to the Colonial Pipeline issues stemming from storms on the Gulf Coast and a return to more normal travel conditions. Gulf Coast refineries were closed for a time, leading to the pipeline shutdown.
