It's war on Ritchie Highway! (Gas war, that is)
The price of gasoline continues to fall in Maryland -- with the statewide average dropping from $2.45 to $2.39 in the space of a week. But if you really want to enjoy the low-price action, head over to Ritchie Highway (Route 2) in Anne Arundel County, where it appears a full-fledged gas price war has broken out.
MarylandGasPrices.com is listing prices as low as $2.18 a gallon along the highway corridor, with several other stations in the Glen Burnie-Pasadena area offering fuel in the low $2.20s. The Laurel area is also a prime area for cheap gas.
But what gives in Montgomery County? A lot of the stations in the Bethesda-Potomac-Rockville area are still above $2.60, according to the web site, with one as high as $2.89. It's long been known that the zone pricing in this state produces some strange variations, but the current price spreads are hard to explain.
Maybe Attorney General Doug Gansler could get some answers.
