Falling gas prices cut DC cab costs as fuel charge expires

Prices remain higher than when the fee was imposed last year, though the commission noted projected declines during the summer. The current average D.C. price is $3.66 per gallon, according to the commission.

“The Commission will continue to monitor the cost of gasoline throughout the summer and fall and should conditions change it will consider appropriate action,” Commission Chairman Ron M. Linton said in a statement Friday.

The declines in the District reflect falling average prices nationwide. The average nationwide cost for regular gasoline is about $3.51 per gallon, according to AAA, well below the peak of almost $4 per gallon earlier this year.
