While the rise in oil prices came as a good news to some countries, the high demand in the US, has driven many drivers to pay more just to fill their gas tanks than they have in the past 3 years.

According to reports from a gas station database, GasBuddy.com, the national average for a gallon of gas has climbed to $2.76, marking the highest since summer 2015 when the cost peaked at $2.81.

The report has it that Californians are paying the highest for gas, at about $3.56 per gallon , while motorists in Missouri are paying about $2.44, which is the lowest.

A senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com, Patrick DeHaan, said;

“While it won’t cost motorists as much as it did during 2011-2014, it will cost them millions more every day versus last year.”

It was further reported that within that four-year span, the average gas per-gallon price remained between $3 and $4.The cost of gas usually rise every spring due to increased driving demand, the current average is 15 percent more than the $2.40 consumers paid a year ago before that amount dropped. For most of summer 2017, the average price for gas hovered around $2.30 or trended lower.
