The Department of Energy reported yesterday that the average price of regular gasoline broke below the barrier of $2 per gallon for the first time since May 17 to $1.985 a gallon, marking the third weekly decline in price.
Mike Kolasinski, a dealer who runs the White Marsh Shell on Pulaski Highway, has been able to lower the price of regular gasoline from a high of $2.07 per gallon on June 3 to $1.97 per gallon as his costs have come down. Yesterday, he was offering a promotion of $1.93 per gallon.
