Gas prices on the rise; California sees largest jumps

Gas prices on the rise; California sees largest jumps

After analyzing gas price data from January through March, GasBuddy found the lowest average gas prices are offered on Monday in 30 states, making it the best day to fill-up.

However, Wednesday is the most expensive day of the week to fill up in NY.

One driver said he spent $80 to fill up his truck.

"The most expensive day to fill-up barely remains Friday when looking at averages, while 16 states saw Saturday have the highest average price", said DeHaan.

But Mono County has already hit an average of $4.48, and Humboldt, Trinity and San Luis Obispo counties are all hovering close to the $4 mark with averages around $3.90, according to AAA. "But most of the $4 per gallon gasoline is thankfully going to stay south in California".

That's higher than California's statewide average of $3.80 for a gallon of regular unleaded, which also happens to be the most expensive of any state at the moment. You may want to wait a few days to fill up. That is, if you want to save on money and avoid lines.

Mnuchin admits White House consulted with Treasury on Trump’s tax returns
Waters said, "Let me just say this: We can not believe anything that's been said by this president or by Mr. Mnuchin revealed the discussions during a congressional hearing.

Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, pointed this fact out while offering a look at the past seven years of year-to-date price changes.

For most parts of the country, Monday is the best day to pull into the gas station.

The entire Central Coast showed gas prices higher than $3.40 on Monday afternoon, according to GasBuddy's pricing heat map. That's just a couple takeaways from a recent study by GasBuddy, a gas price watch dog.

The price of a gallon of gas went up 4.8 cents in the last week, marking the eighth week of increases and the highest level in almost five months.
