Average Gas Price in US Hits $4.00

The average gas price in the United States has hit the $4 mark, just 11 cents shy of the all-time high, according to a survey published by the Lundberg Survey.

However, a short-term decline may be coming as a result of the recent dip in crude prices. Emphasis should be on short-term decline.
The city with the highest average price in the latest survey was Chicago, at $4.50 a gallon. The lowest was Tucson, Arizona, at $3.62.

Here are the average prices in some other cities. (Variations in price are generally the result of transportation costs and state taxes):

-- Newark, New Jersey, $3.87

-- Boston, Massachusetts, $4.04

-- Baltimore, Maryland $3.97

-- Atlanta, Georgia, $3.93

-- Birmingham, Alabama, $3.74

-- Salt Lake City, Utah, $3.69

-- Seattle, Washington, $4.04

-- Los Angeles, California, $4.26


  1. The gas prices are at a sky high. It seems there is nothing that can stop this gas price hike.

  2. It is really difficult to control price hike. It would always depend on the market. Since there is a great demand for it, it would require higher supply which would have a greater cost. green light laser

  3. They are indeed high. It hurts my budget when I bring my car to work. I hope this would go down. oil storage tanks
