AAA predicts the trend of the national gas price average being cheaper year-over-year for 336 days will end as early as this week. At $2.42, the national average is only a nickel cheaper than a year ago.

“For nearly a year, motorists have been saving 53 cents a gallon, on average, when filling up their gas tanks. That extra pocket change is quickly going to dwindle thanks to rising crude oil prices that have made for more expensive pump prices,” said Jeanette Casselano McGee, AAA spokesperson.

Ten states are already carrying more expensive gas prices compared to a year ago. These states include: Delaware (+23 cents), Maryland (+9 cents), Iowa (+6 cents) and Indiana (+6 cents). On the other side of that, nearly 12 states still have gas price averages that are as much as 38 cents a gallon less than this time last year.
