Average gasoline prices in Alabama rose a whopping 16.1 cents per gallon over the past week, up to an average of $3.16 a gallon Monday, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,348 gas stations in Alabama.

Prices in Alabama are 41.4 cents per gallon higher than this time last month and 16 cents per gallon higher than this time last year.

Nationally, the average price of gas rose 11.3 cents per gallon in the past week, up to an average of $3.39 a gallon as of Monday. Diesel prices rose 2.6 cents in the last week, up to an average of $4.60 per gallon.

“Gasoline prices continued their upward trajectory last week as oil prices pulled them higher across the majority of the country, and continued refinery challenges kept the supply of gasoline from rising more substantially,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Moving forward, it doesn’t look good for motorists, with prices likely to continue accelerating.”

According to GasBuddy price reports:

  • The cheapest gas in Alabama was priced at $2.59 a gallon as of Sunday
  • The most expensive gas in Alabama was priced at $3.49 a gallon as of Sunday
