Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, gas prices are up again this week.
This week prices jumped another six cents, bringing the national average to around $3.90 a gallon.
Despite these outrageously high prices, AAA has even more bad news. They say the summer months mean another spike.
AAA says April is when the East Coast switches from winter fuel blends to the more expensive summer fuel blends. And for drivers that means topping off already abnormally high prices.
“What we’re about to see, the increases will just make it even worse but these are typical increase we would see seasonal,” said Ragina Averella, AAA spokeswoman.
Experts expect prices to jump 10 to 20 cents over the next few weeks before spiking in mid-May at around a record-breaking $4.25 a gallon.
