Massachusetts gas prices jump a nickel per gallon
Hancock County saw the most significant jump, as the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas went from $2.25 last week to $2.38 early Monday - a 13-cent climb. The state average rose 7.7 cents in a week to the Monday-morning benchmark of $2.276 on GasBuddy's Fuel Insights survey report. And while gas prices can vary a great deal depending on geography and other factors, the agency says it believes the average price of gas will rise to $2.39 a gallon this year, from $2.15 a gallon in 2016.
Gas prices cruised to a 19-month high across the US last week as refineries began switching to more expensive summer-blend gasoline, with maintenance issues at two refineries accelerating the increase in IL, according to AAA. "Declining gasoline inventories, like we saw last week, normally trigger a rise in gas prices". That's about 29 cents higher than this time a year ago. Georgia, though, has seen just the ninth-highest spike in gas prices as Kentucky, Michigan, Florida and in all were double digits. In Turlock, the city's average gasoline price sits at $2.779 - a two-cent increase from last month's price.
Likewise, average gasoline prices fell 1.5 cents per gallon during the start and end of the first quarter of 2017, the first such decline since at least 2008, DeHaan said.
Last year, drivers were paying $1.87 for gas.

If you're living in the Western United States, home to six of the most expensive states for gasoline, you're probably eyeing this year's national average with envy.
"While the continued increases are completely seasonal in nature, it's not any easier for motorists to digest", DeHaan added. MI was up 12 cents a gallon, followed by IN at 11 cents, Missouri at 9 cents, IL at 8 cents and Wisconsin at 7 cents.
In addition, the country's recent missile attack on Syria has caused more "heat" between some of the world's largest oil producers, said DeHaan, causing concern in oil markets and contributing to higher prices. Motor club AAA puts the price a penny higher. Crude oil surged past $50 per barrel on Friday, closing at $52.24 per barrel, the highest close of trading since March 7.
In Hawaii, the nation's most expensive market, gas averaged $3.05 per gallon last week.
