Relief in Gas Prices around the area

Gas prices have fallen below $3.50 a gallon around the area for the first time since January. Its a good relief as people begin to travel with family friends for the summer. I recently came across an article over at WestChesterPatch.com were they reported, “Not since late-January of this year have we seen gas prices in the Philadelphia area below the $3.50 per gallon mark,” said Jenny M. Robinson, Manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic.  “Now that crude oil has settled in the $80 range, down from a triple digit highs this spring, gas prices are shifting downward as well. Analysts believe the recent drop in prices will likely last through the summer months and could potentially drop to the $3.00 to $3.25 per gallon range in some areas.”

The price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline is hovering around $3.51 nationally, while averaging $3.43 in Pennsylvania, $3.33 in South Jersey, and $3.37 in Delaware. I have seen gas around the area as low as $3.33 at the local Sunoco down from our offices located in Chadds Ford. I hope prices continue to fall or at least stay around the lower $3 per gallon mark but who knows what might happen next!

Local Flooding Feared and Snow?

Heavy rain’s the main concern today for Philadelphia and its suburbs, while areas to the west and north could see snow on the ground by Thursday morning. Predicted snow accumulations range from a coating to an inch in outer Chester, Montgomery and Bucks Counties, to two to four inches for Reading and Allentown, to perhaps six inches in the Poconos. With up to three inches possible in places, a flood advisory will be in effect from 10 a.m. to late tonight from central Delaware to central Jersey.

Small streams and the usual poorly drained low-lying streets are likeliest to flood, potentially causing traffic headaches for both the morning and afternoon commutes – and, for some spots, perhaps even into Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. Overnight, those western and northern areas should be snow mix in, followed by a changeover to just snow. Then colder temperatures will settle in, with highs in the 40s through the weekend, and lows around freezing mark for a few nights, followed by dips into the 20s Saturday and Sunday.
