WILMINGTON - Gasoline prices aren't going down in Delaware as they often do over the Labor Day weekend.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says Delaware's average gasoline price is $3.59 a gallon, up 7 cents from last week. Delaware radio station WDEL-AM (1150) reports that is also up more than a dollar from last year. Pennsylvania and New Jersey have seen similar increases.
The national average on Friday was $3.65 a gallon, up 6 cents from last week and nearly a dollar from Labor Day weekend last year. AAA says Hurricane Irene and tropical storms have disrupted production at some oil refineries. - AP
