"There's no fooling motorists, gas prices have continued to surge. For the seventh straight week the national average has continued to rise, unabated, due to seasonal impacts. The run-up this spring has felt worse than prior years, and thus far, the national average is up nearly 50 cents per gallon from our 2019 low. Unfortunately, this a rut we'll be stuck in yet for at least a few more weeks," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.
