Nationally, prices rose 2.7 cents per gallon, up to an average of $3.55 a gallon as of Tuesday. The national average price of diesel fell 4.9 cents over the past week, down to $3.91 per gallon.
“Gasoline prices have drifted higher in the last week due to some relatively minor refinery kinks and low gasoline supply, but it may not be a trend that lasts too much longer,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “As we unofficially start the summer driving season, the national average is likely to spend much of the summer in the range of $3.35 to $3.85 per gallon, though it could go higher if unexpected refinery outages flare up, or we see a major hurricane or economic development.”
