Gas Prices Expected to Rise With Summer
(AP) - It’s that time of year when gas prices are expected to rise as the tourist season gets underway on Delmarva.
Crude oil prices are at the highest level in more than three years and expected to climb higher, pushing up gasoline prices along the way.
The U.S. daily national average for regular gasoline is now $2.81 per gallon. That's up from about $2.39 per gallon a year ago
And across the U.S., 13 percent of gas stations are charging $3 per gallon or more, AAA Mid-Atlantic said last week.
The price of U.S. crude oil has been on a mostly steady incline since last June and last week hit $68.64, the highest since December 2014.
