Gas Costs Break 2008 Record, Now the Most Expensive in US History

Share this article

Gas prices in the United States are at a record high, even breaking 2008’s record. This is amidst Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a report said.

As per AAA, the cost of regular gas in the U.S. as of this morning is $4.17, breaking 2008’s $4.11 record. Today’s national average cost is an increase from Monday’s $4.06 and the $3.60 recorded last week.

Diesel price is currently at $4.75/gallon, approaching 2008’s $4.84 record.

Gas prices are expected to balloon throughout the year. GasBuddy, a fuel-savings app, projects that prices will likely average $4.25 in May and continue to be above $4 until November. 

As of this morning, 28 states have average prices above $4. Only South Dakota, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arkansas have averaged under $3.80. The cheapest state to get gas is Oklahoma, at $3.71. Meanwhile, the average gas price in California is $5.44/gallon, according to AAA.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, among other factors, continues to cause fuel costs to increase. Tom Kloza, the chief global analyst for the Oil Price Information Service, previously told USA TODAY that Russia is the second-largest oil producer in the world, behind the United States.
