Another New Record High Price for Gas in Schuylkill County

This new record may seem like a bargain in a few weeks.

new record gas price schuylkill county pa

Gas prices just jumped to a new record high in Schuylkill County.

On Wednesday, we spotted $4.89 at the Turkey Hill in Port Carbon. That’s a dime higher than the previous high of $4.79, which held for close to a week. The price for premium gas is an astronomical $5.69 but all those numbers are likely to go even higher.

According to AAA, less demand for gasoline stabilized the price of gas over the last week but that will be a distant memory soon as the price for a gallon of gasoline is expected to continue to climb.

Summer travel will likely push prices higher but so will a European Union ban on Russian oil exports, AAA reports.

Gas Hits $4.89 Per Gallon in Schuylkill County

The $4.89 per gallon price in Schuylkill County is 22 cents higher than the national average of $4.67. And it’s 11 cents higher than the average price of gas in Pennsylvania, which is at $4.78.

There are currently 4 counties in Pennsylvania with a higher price for gas, according to AAA, than Schuylkill County:

  • Bradford: $4.97
  • Susquehanna: $4.93
  • Wyoming: $4.93
  • Pike: $4.91

If there’s any sort of silver lining here, it’s that the price of diesel fuel has actually come down over the last month. Right now, the average price per gallon for diesel fuel in Pennsylvania is $6.23. That’s a nickel less than it was last week and down from an all-time high of $6.32 set on May 18.

    It’s $4.99 at the gas station when you get off the interstate at Mahanoy City as of yesterday, and it’s the same price at the gas station on Poplar Street in Hazleton as of today. I’ve seen it go above $5 in Hazleton but not in the past few days. Hoping to not see it go past this!

      Yeah, the same day we reported on it being $4.89, it actually went up to $4.95 at the same station in Port Carbon.
