How gas prices have changed in Pennsylvania in the last week

Gas prices have largely held steady over the last several days as freezing weather and ice crushed Texas and other parts of the southern U.S. keeping Americans home.

Despite the cold weather in some regions demand for gas rose slightly, but supplies of gasoline are also on the rise which has, "helped to limit pump price increases," according to AAA.

A gallon of gas was $3.49 on average this week, according to AAA gas price data. Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in Pennsylvania. Gas prices are as of February 3. The state gas tax data is from World Population Review.

Utah and Colorado saw gas prices increase the most of any other states while Delaware, Ohio, and Florida saw gas prices per gallon decline several cents.
