Live in Baltimore and limit gas expenditures

For many people, avoiding the gas pump has become a normal occurrence. Rising gas prices are a common problem for consumers across the United States. In the Baltimore area, gas prices have continued to rise. According to AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report, the average price for a gallon of regular gas in the greater Baltimore area was at $3.69 on August 20, 2012. This is up from $3.68 the previous week and $3.46 on July 20, 2012.

Despite the increase in gas prices, Baltimore still has relatively cheap fuel in comparison to the national average, which was recorded at $3.70 on August 20, 2012. For those commuting into the city, rising gas prices can be concerning. One of the perks of purchasing one of the houses for sale in Baltimore is the various public transportation options available to residents.

The Maryland Transportation Administration features nearly 51 local buses that run throughout the Baltimore area, a commuter bus that operates during the weekday rush hours, the Maryland Area Regional Community (MARC) train, the light rail and the metro subway. Residents can take advantage of these public transportation options to limit their gas expenses.
