The national average price for regular unleaded gasoline hit its highest point of 2018 on Saturday at $2.663 per gallon, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group.  Sunday’s average of $2.662 is a half a cent more than last week, 13 cents more than a month ago and 28 cents more than this time last year.  Gas prices edged higher this week following Energy Information Administration’s latest weekly report that revealed that gasoline stocks dropped by 1.1 million barrels last week.  Additionally, the demand for gasoline continues to remain robust at 9.2 million barrels per day as spring driving season begins, which saw demand measured at 9.25 million barrels a day at the same time in 2017.  Drivers are likely to continue seeing prices increase as gas stations across the country begin to switch over to the more expensive summer blend ahead of the busy driving season.
