CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — Gas prices in the northern counties of West Virginia jumped by about 43 cents this week to an average of $2.745 per gallon, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report.

Gas prices across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast region continue to follow the trend of having some of the most expensive states in the country, with Pennsylvania ($2.87) and Washington, D.C. ($2.87) leading the way.

Even though gas supplies remain high across the country, prices continue to react to the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and distribution issues caused by flooding in the Gulf Coast. As pipelines and refineries return to their full operations in the region, prices should start to decrease later in the month.

The following is a list of the average prices in several West Virginia locations: $2.901 — Bridgeport; $2.869 —Clarksburg; $2.781 — Huntington; $2.773 — Martinsburg; $2.877 — Morgantown; $2.600 — Parkersburg; $2.580 — Weirton; and $2.582 — Wheeling.

Motorists can find current gas prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android. The app can also be used to map a route, find discounts, book a hotel and access AAA roadside assistance. Learn more at www.AAA.com/mobile.
