Gas prices hit all-time highs across Philadelphia, tri-state area

May 10, 2022

Gas prices across the tri-state hit another record high on Monday, just ahead of the busy summer driving season.

It’s $4.64 a record gallon in Philadelphia, 14 cents above the statewide average.

Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware are also at all-time highs.

It’s $4.50 in Pennsylvania, $4.47 in New Jersey and $4.40 in Delaware.

Nationally drivers are paying $4.32 for a gallon of unleaded, that’s $1.36 over what it was on this day a year ago.

The national average for diesel has hit an all-time high at $5.54.

Rising crude oil prices and concern about less Russian oil entering the global market are fueling the spike, according to Distinguished Professor Michael Lahr.
