They exceeded $4.37 per gallon.
The cost of gasoline at gas stations in the United States has again broken the historical maximum, exceeding $4.37 per gallon (3.785 liters). This is evidenced by the data of the non-profit American Automobile Association (AAA), which tracks prices at more than 60 thousand gas stations.
According to her, the average cost of a gallon of gasoline by Tuesday morning reached $4,374 in the United States. As stated on the AAA website, this is the highest average in history, which broke the March anti-record of $4,331. The most expensive gasoline prices in the country traditionally remain in the state of California, where motorists will have to pay an average of $5,841 per gallon.
The increase in the cost of fuel occurs despite the decline in oil prices. The price of futures for WTI crude oil for June deliveries fell on Tuesday by $1.95 (1.89%), to $101.14 per barrel. According to the U.S. National Public Radio (NPR), the increase in fuel prices, in addition to rapidly rising inflation and uncertainty in the global energy market, is also associated with the approach of summer, when demand for gasoline increases due to the holiday period.
