Gas prices are cheapest on this day

Gas prices to continue to shoot up in Tri-State

While Monday is the best day to fill up, in most states Friday is the worst... but just by a nose. In terms of what gas was going for this time previous year, the national average was $2.66 while Michigan's was at about $2.68 per gallon.

Analysts blame the price hikes on unplanned refinery maintenance at several locations.

As it stands Monday morning, the average cost for a gallon of self-serve unleaded fuel is about $2.74 across the USA and about $2.82 in MI.

In one month, prices at the pump have soared in the Golden State, climbing from an average of $3.30 to $3.80, according to AAA.

After analyzing gas price data from January through March, GasBuddy found the lowest average gas prices are offered on Monday in 30 states, making it the best day to fill-up. That's up 14 cents from a week ago and 38 cents from a month ago. In San Bernardino and Riverside counties, it's hovering around $3.80. Gas at the 7-Eleven on El Camino Real in Atascadero was $3.55 a gallon on Monday, and the 7-Eleven on Spring Street in Paso Robles was selling gas for $3.48 a gallon, according to GasBuddy.

The base in Bagram district is located in northern Parwan province and serves as the main US air facility in the country. Three U.S. service members were also wounded in the incident near Bagram air base close to Kabul, the statement said.

On Mondays, some prices tick upward in the afternoon, so it's often a good idea to fill up in the morning.

"As the week progresses and our excitement builds for the weekend, gas prices also have a tendency to rise", he said.

DeHaan forecasts the average price in California will hit $4 for a gallon of regular gasoline by the end of this week - something no state has experienced in almost the past five years.

"There's certainly the ability for motorists to find a cheaper station now before prices finish rising", he said.
