According to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com, average retail gas prices rose by 1.5 cents per gallon last week. In Sacramento, the average was $3.42 a gallon, a 16-cent spike in one month and nearly 52 cents higher than this time previous year. The national average has increased 17.7 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 30.1 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

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

The average cost for a gallon of regular unleaded across Florida on Monday was $2.63, with the national average at $2.71.

"That could be very close to what we expect this time around", DeHaan said.

According to GasBuddy, states where prices moved most last week were: MI (up 12 cents); Utah (up nine cents); Idaho and Nebraska (up eight cents); and Georgia, Illinois, West Virginia, Missouri, Texas and Tennessee (up seven cents).

DeHaan said refinery maintenance has gone well so far, gasoline supply has continued to increase and the transition to summer gasoline supplies is nearly finished.

Looking state-by-state, the largest weekly changes in average gas prices were seen in: MI (+12 cents), Utah (+9 cents), Idaho (+8 cents), Nebraska (+8 cents), Georgia (+7 cents), IL (+7 cents), West Virginia (+7 cents), Missouri (+7 cents), Texas (+7 cents) and Tennessee (+7 cents).

The AAA Auto Club said today that pump prices will get even more expensive this week and will likely rise to the highest level in more than two years, due to rising geopolitical tensions in the Middle East.

That means Orlando could see prices in the high $2.70s soon, said Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA.

Gas prices are continuing to rise in Decatur and the state.

According to GasBuddy, which tracks fuel prices, motorists weren't seeing much of a difference in prices at Manatee ($2.56 average) and Sarasota ($2.57) outlets.

$2.33 per gallon in 2016 to $3.70 per gallon in 2013.
