AAA: Georgia gas prices hit new 2018 high

Gas prices jump at the start of spring

The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.569 at self-service pumps in the Ocean State, according to AAA Northeast's weekly survey.

Californians haven't seen gas prices this high in four years, when the state average price was more than $4 between March and August of 2014.

The average price has increased 15 consecutive days, rising 9.1 cents, including a half-cent on Monday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

Roanoke- $2.36/g, up 3.1 cents per gallon from last week's $2.33/g.

Gas prices have increased 11.4 cents from last month's average and have increased 27.5 cents from last year's average.




Wilk said that one of his legislative goals in 2018 will be to repeal SB 1 - the 12-cents-per-gallon "gas tax" that went into effect in California three months ago.

Summer gas is typically more refined and better for the environment but more costly, AAA officials said. "This robust gasoline demand, coupled with lower supply levels, are setting the stage for rising prices in the coming weeks".

Prices at the pump spiked last week.

"Continued strong demand for gasoline, rising crude oil prices and declining gasoline inventories have pushed local gas prices higher this week", said Tammy Arnette, Senior Public Affairs Specialist for AAA Mid-Atlantic. Inside the city of Lawrenceville, prices have been reported at $2.25 and $2.29, the lowest in the county. The summer-blend fuel is also more expensive because off the additives that are used to prevent evaporation. "The jump in gas prices is just the beginning for the season". The West Palm Beach-Boca metro area was highest at $2.67.
