When is the Best, Worst Time to Buy Gasoline?

Average gas prices in US up 50 cents since January, largest YTD spike since 2012

That's up 14 cents from a week ago and 38 cents from a month ago.

One driver said he spent $80 to fill up his truck. "It really is going to be ugly this week on the West Coast". But this year, unplanned outages at California refineries as well as the rising costs of ethanol due to flooding in the Midwest and rising oil prices are creating a "triple whammy", DeHaan said. And the average price is already above $3 a gallon in six western states: California, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Alaska.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are the most expensive and have the longest wait times when looking at national averages.

More Than 103,000 Migrants Reached Southern Border In March
Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, made both a public and private plea to the White House not to dismiss career homeland security officials. He says that the United States is "full" and can not take any more migrants or even people fleeing violence in Central America.


Sacramento County prices remain near the American Automobile Association's $3.80 state average.

If shorter lines at the checkout are more important to you than saving a few bucks, GasBuddy also analyzed foot traffic data and found that gas stations across the country are least busy on Sundays, followed by Mondays. The Harrisburg area is close to that, averaging $2.86 per gallon. If gas indeed hits $4 a gallon, it will be the first time since 2014. "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". That's just a couple takeaways from a recent study by GasBuddy, a gas price watch dog.

Experts predict prices won't be coming down anytime soon. However, if anything else comes up that impacts gasoline production, it will take more time.

Gas prices are likely to climb as summer approaches.
