by on Apr.05, 2016

Gas prices are on the rise as producers move to the summer blend of fuel.

With the summer driving season fast approaching, the price of gasoline continues to climb, pushing the average price beyond $2 per gallon, according to a new report by AAA.

Despite increasing for 36 of the past 41 days, the national average is at its lowest price point for this same date since 2009, according to AAA.

“The average price of $2.06 per gallon represents an increase of two cents on the week and 24 cents on the month. Pump prices continue to reflect year-over-year discounts, and drivers are saving 34 cents per gallon versus this same date last year,” the organization noted. (more…)

With winter showing signs of easing its grip on parts of the nation, the average price for regular unleaded gasoline at U.S. pumps rose 4.74 cents over the past two weeks to $3.557 a gallon, the highest figure since Sept. 20, according to Lundberg Survey Inc.

It'll cost you more to use one of these this week.

Though gas prices ended the year well below their 2013 peak, the New Year is off to a poor start, 2014 is off to a bad start, motorists in much of the country paying the highest price on record for the start of the year.

There have been a number of recent reports suggesting that with oil production rising – especially in the U.S. – the cost of fuel could hold steady or even decline over the next several years. But as the holiday season comes to an end, motorists aren’t catching a break.  According to AAA, the week began with prices across the U.S. averaging $3.31 a gallon for regular no-lead gas.

Fill 'er Up!

It was the fifth consecutive January 1 that Americans paid more at the pump than the year prior and the fourth straight year with a new record to start the year, according to AAA. The national average prices to begin 2011, 2012 and 2013 were $3.07, $3.28 and $3.29 respectively.
