Gas prices continue to rise nationwide

Gas prices continue to rise nationwide”

Monday might not be fun day, but it's the best day of the week in most states to save money at the gas pump.

Friday is the busiest day, with 5 p.m. being the busiest time for gas stations nationwide. "The most expensive day to fill-up remains Friday when looking at averages, while 16 states saw Saturday have the highest average price". The websitegasbuddy.com studied gas prices from January through March across the country. What holds true for most places, according to the study, is that filling up earlier in the week is generally cheaper.

And in California alone, the statewide average is $3.83 a gallon.

The high prices will last at least another week or two, before they'll start coming back down, DeHaan said. "... I believe the peak price that we face will likely be in the next month, then prices should trail off as long as there are no unforeseen issues".

An unfortunate series of events - flooding in the Midwest, the shift to summer blend fuel and refinery fires in California - have all contributed to the spike in prices, according to the Automobile Club of California. "On the week, motorists in the West Coast, Rockies, Great Lakes and Central regions are seeing some of the largest weekly increases while prices mostly east of the MS have made more moderate jumps".

Prices are up by about 28 cents in both the entire USA and MI on average during the past month. DeHaan says to expected another 10-20 cents to be added on top of that as prices rise. "But most of the $4 per gallon gasoline is thankfully going to stay south in California".
