Peak gas prices coming to Washington over next few weeks

Peak gas prices coming to Washington over next few weeks

While Saturday is the worst day to buy gas in 16 states, Friday has the most expensive average price of any other day of the week.

An unfortunate series of events - flooding in the Midwest, the shift to summer blend fuel and refinery fires in California - have all contributed to the spike in prices, according to the Automobile Club of California.

In a study the app released exclusively to USA Today, GasBuddy found both the best and worst days to fill up nationwide in each state, with Monday being the clear, overall victor for penny pinchers.

Monday might not be fun day, but it's the best day of the week in most states to save money at the gas pump. That's up 14 cents from a week ago and 38 cents from a month ago.

A gallon of regular unleaded is just slightly cheaper in Orange and Ventura counties, where it costs an average of $3.85.

The NHL uses three separate drawings to select the teams for the top three picks in the draft, in an effort to discourage tanking. The Montreal Canadiens , Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers were the Canadian teams involved.

As it stands Monday morning, the average cost for a gallon of self-serve unleaded fuel is about $2.74 across the US and about $2.82 in MI.

In San Luis Obispo County, prices on Monday ranged from $3.53 at the Sinclair on Morro Bay Boulevard in Morro Bay to $4.49 at the Chevron on Main Street in Cambria, according to GasBuddy's website.

"As the week progresses and our excitement builds for the weekend, gas prices also have a tendency to rise", explained Patrick DeHaan, with GasBuddy.

Experts predict prices won't be coming down anytime soon. Modesto is seeing an average price of $3.57 per gallon, up 12.6 cents from last week, and Sacramento's average gas price as of Monday morning was $3.66 per gallon, up 14 cents from last week, DeHaan said.
