The Cost of Gas in Your State This Week

Gasoline prices have been on a rollercoaster so far in 2022. Here's where they stand this week.
Fuel School

The national average for a gallon of regular gas started the week at $4.98, down a couple of cents over the last seven days.

A slight drop in gas demand has helped to limit pump price increases. However, as crude oil prices remain volatile, the price per gallon for gasoline will likely remain elevated.

Three states in the Northeast are paying below $5.00 per gallon of regular gas, Connecticut ($4.94), New Hampshire ($4.95) and Rhode Island ($4.97). Here’s where your state stands this week:

7 Thoughts on “The Cost of Gas in Your State This Week

  1. I was under the impression the New York’s Governor was going to give a gasoline tax break – am I correct and if so, what happened to it? Based on comparing costs across the NE it doesn’t appear that any break was given.

    1. The price went down for a day or two. Then it rose back up because of the wholesale rise in the price of gasoline. The rise wiped out any reduction. The whole thing is a sham.

    1. Just what I came in to say! A rollercoaster at least has some significant drops. This has been a steady climb. A few cents’ drop one week does not a “rollercoaster” make.
