Gas prices level off in Maryland
Gas priced leveled off in Maryland last week as the cost for a gallon of unleaded held steady at $3.09 -- high by historical standards but still more than $1 below the 2008 record, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic.
Nationally, the price crept up from $3.09 to $3.10. Crude oil closed at $91.43 Friday.
AAA remains pessimistic about the near-term prospects at the pump, saying that it is not a question of if, but when, crude oil prices will top $100 a barrel.
