While gasoline prices are rising across the United States, the average price per gallon of regular is still below $2.50 at about 80 percent of stations. However, prices are well below that in 10 states, where per-gallon prices are as low as $2.10.
AAA reports that gas prices rose in 40 states last week. That puts prices above where they have been recently but below the same time last year. Specifically, at $2.39, the national gas price average is eight cents a gallon above last week and 12 cents above last month. However, the price is 12 cents per gallon below the same period in 2018.
