Average gasoline prices on August 13 in Virginia have ranged widely over the last five years:

Areas near Virginia and their current gas price climate:
Roanoke- $2.54/g, unchanged  from last week’s $2.54/g.
Richmond- $2.58/g, down 1.6 cents per gallon from last week’s $2.59/g.
West Virginia- $2.84/g, down 1 cent per gallon from last week’s $2.85/g.

“Yet again, average gas prices have remained fairly quiet. This summer has been remarkably mum at pumps with most states seeing prices move in an uncharacteristically small summer range of 10-20 cents per gallon or less,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “Oil prices continue to be range bound between $67 and around $73 per barrel as of late as competing factors weigh on oil prices at very similar times. Oil inventories have continued to decline, but gasoline inventories remain healthy, and with summer drawing to a close and gasoline demand set to step down, we may see additional relief coming barring any disruptions to the flow of oil or gasoline like a major hurricane. ”
