How gas prices have changed in Chambersburg in the last week

Gas prices are a few cents lower than a week ago and almost 10 cents lower than they were at this time last year. Low summer demand, a drop in oil prices, and record levels of oil production in the U.S. are contributing to that trend.

Prices are trending higher in some Midwestern states, however, partially due to a power outage at a refinery in Illinois, according to GasBuddy analyst Patrick De Haan. Refinery owner Exxon hasn't said when it could be back online.

"We've often said how critical refineries are, and with a long power outage, we're seeing the impact very quickly, but relief will eventually arrive," De Haan said in a statement Monday. "For now, as we approach the end of summer vacations, I'm hopeful gas prices will continue to edge slightly lower in the week ahead."
