‚ÄčThe average price for a gallon of gasoline in the region appears to have leveled off, after rising more than 10 cents during the month of December.

It costs about $2.70 per gallon of unleaded regular, on average, in the Washington region now. That’s about 20 cents more than the national average, but there are many stations charging less. In Maryland, the average price for a gallon is about 5 cents more than the national average. Virginia’s prices are about 15 cents less than the national average, but higher as you get close to the District.
