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. But this may only be the beginning.

Paying more at the pump isn't just limited to MA.

GasBuddy.com, which surveys 170 gas outlets in Chattanooga, said today that local prices at the pump rose 3.5 cents per gallon to $2.45 per gallon for regular gasoline.

February predictions of $4-a-gallon gasoline in California by Memorial Day stalled a bit in March, but prices are climbing again, and not just in California. With Baker Hughes, Inc. reporting that the US added seven oil rigs last week - bringing the total to 815 - crude production in the U.S.is likely to continue growing.

Including the change in gas prices in Minnesota during the past week, prices yesterday were 18.9 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 6.1 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

Seasonal factors in the US also are in play now, said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. The situation in Syria escalated Friday night when the US, the United Kingdom and France launched missile attacks on Syrian facility used to produce chemical weapons. State gas prices have now risen 12 cents over the past month, and were 32 cents lower 12 months ago. The agency is forecasting an average gas price of $2.64/gal for all of 2018.

Anchorage- $3.12/g, up 3.6 cents per gallon from last week's $3.09/g.

The auto club said the conflict has caused crude oil prices to hit their highest mark in more than three years amid the fighting in the middle eastern nation.

"What's clear is that most states have recently raised gas taxes using the current environment of lower prices as cover", said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. However, we're likely in the closing innings of the seasonal rise - let's just hope we don't go to extra innings. Prices traditionally start their seasonal rise in mid-February as refiners begin maintenance that enables them to transition to producing more expensive summer-blend gasoline. At this time previous year, the average price of gas in MA was 32 cents lower at $2.28.
