Locally, motorists in the Bradenton-Sarasota area were seeing one of the lowest averages ($2.56) in the state, though that's likely of little consolation since prices are about 20 cents higher than a year ago.

New York City had a 5 cent increase in gases prices this week, with the average gas price coming in at $2.89 per gallon.

According to GasBuddy, states where prices moved most last week were: MI (up 12 cents); Utah (up nine cents); Idaho and Nebraska (up eight cents); and Georgia, Illinois, West Virginia, Missouri, Texas and Tennessee (up seven cents). Since then, the highest recorded average has already surpassed this year's high.

Honolulu- $3.42/g, up 6.5 cents per gallon from last week's $3.36/g. "The conflict in Syria has sent crude prices to their highest point in more than three years, and as a result motorists are going to see that at the pump". The New York State average is $2.82 this week, up six cents from last week and 30 cents more than this time past year.

"There is tremendous volatility in the oil and gasoline market", AAA spokeswoman Jeanette Casselano said.

Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have risen 3.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.45 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 170 gas outlets in Chattanooga.

"That could be very close to what we expect this time around", DeHaan said. Refinery maintenance has gone well thus far, and gasoline supply has continued to push higher as more refiners conclude their work.

Gas prices are continuing to rise in Decatur and the state.

$2.33 per gallon in 2016 to $3.70 per gallon in 2013.

Four-dollars-a-gallon gasoline, not seen in the Golden State since midsummer 2014, is starting to look likely due to developments that pushed at-the-pump prices into overdrive last week.

States with the lowest average gasoline prices: Missouri ($2.42), Oklahoma ($2.43), Arkansas ($2.43), MS ($2.45), SC ($2.46), Louisiana ($2.47), Kansas ($2.48), Texas ($2.48), Alabama ($2.49) and Wyoming ($2.50).
