The national average gas price has reached a new high and is anticipated to rise further as the United States’ energy supply crisis worsens.
According to the most recent AAA data, the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States reached a new high of $4.47 on Sunday morning. On Saturday, the cost was $4.452.
California, with a gallon price of $5.92, and Hawaii, with a price of $5.32, are two states with higher-than-average pricing.
Diesel also reached its highest recorded price, little around $5.56.
According to Andy Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates, the national average was $3.53 before Russia was sanctioned for invading Ukraine, endangering the already tight global oil market.
He predicted that the national average might soon reach $4.50 per gallon.
