Maybe the gas prices were too busy dealing with the rain, but they remained steady over night here and at the national level.
In the five-county Philadelphia region, the average for a gallon of regular no-lead held at $4.04, and across the river in South Jersey, the price was $3.88, according to figures from AAA Mid-Atlantic.
The national average was at $3.98.
Diesel prices weren't moving much, either: The Philadelphia region saw the average price drop a penny, to $4.98. South Jersey's average for diesel held at $4.73.
The national diesel average remained at $4.78.
Oil prices dropped below $124 a barrel today after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke signaled that inflation had become a more prominent concern.
The contract fell $3.45 to settle at $124.31 a barrel in the previous session.
That was oil's lowest settlement price for a front-month contract on Nymex since May 15. Prices are now more than $11 below the trading record of $135.09 a barrel hit on May 22.
"The stars for a significant correction in crude oil are lining up," U.S. analyst and trader Stephen Schork said in a research note.

The latest MasterCard SpendingPulse survey found that demand for gasoline in the U.S. fell by 4.7 percent last week - which included the long Memorial Day holiday weekend - compared to the same week last year.
Averaged over the last four weeks, demand was down 6 percent last week compared to last year.
