Gasoline prices in Philadelphia and South Jersey were unchanged today as OPEC ministers met in Angola and made no change in their production quotas .
In Philadelphia and the four suburban counties in Pennsylvania, the average pump price for regular-grade stayed at $2.69 a gallon, the same as on Monday, AAA Mid-Atlantic reported. That was one cent less than a week ago and down three cents from a month ago.
In the three suburban counties in South Jersey, today's average remained at $2.46 a gallon - two cents less than both a week ago and a month ago, AAA said.
Nationally, today's average price is $2.59 a gallon, also unchanged from Monday.
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries held its year-old output targets unchanged today. But the group grappled with overproduction by some members that could undercut efforts to support oil prices amid a fragile global economic recovery. -Paul Schweizer
