Gas Prices: Prices at the Pump Begin to Creep Up Again

Advertisement
Average gas prices in the United States are creeping up again after a steady decline in recent weeks. The average cost for a gallon of regular gasoline is $4.12—about five cents more than it was a week ago.

Volatility in the crude oil market is being driven globally by several major factors: Russia’s war in Ukraine and drop in production due to sanctions; the closure of several Libyan oil fields and export terminals due to political protests; and falling demand amid China’s COVID-19-related lockdowns in Shanghai.

Gas prices are current as of April 21. State gas tax data is from World Population Review. Three states—Connecticut, Georgia, and Maryland—have temporarily suspended gas taxes to defray costs for consumers while prices are up.
