High Gas Prices — Our Patience is Running on Fumes


The price of gasoline — and other auto fuels — is on the rise again. The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) says the price of regular-grade gas hit a record high last week. On average prices for a gallon of gas in the U.S. stands at $4.33.

Diesel is looking at a record high and even steeper prices. It now averages $5.62 a gallon.

Prices dropped all through March and April but — as always — with the approach of Memorial Day and lots of weekend travel, prices are up.

AAA says the Western states — and in particular, California — are seeing the highest prices. The lowest costs per gallon are in the Midwest.

Georgia has the lowest average I the U.S. at $3.95 a gallon.

As noted earlier, PIA Western Alliance members — most of whom live in the West — are seeing staggering prices. Here is the list of what a gallon of regular gas looked like on Monday, May 16th, for in the nine PIA Western Alliance states.
