NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The national average price for a gallon of gasoline rose for the eighth straight day on Saturday to $3.835. That is now only about 7% below the record high of $4.11 from July 2008.
The average price rose by four-tenths of a penny, according to the survey of gas stations conducted for the motorist group AAA. Gas prices are now up more than 17% this year.
The nationwide average was $3.52 a gallon a month ago and $3.76 a gallon on March 9 -- the day that prices started rising again after a few days of slight declines.
Gasoline averages more than $4 a gallon in seven states: Alaska, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, New York and Washington. Gas prices are also above $4 a gallon in the District of Columbia, according to AAA. At nearly $4.48 a gallon, Hawaii ranks as the nation's high
Wyoming has the nation's lowest gas prices, averaging slightly above $3.40 a gallon.

It’s okay, Obama said high gas prices make things harder. He understands our pain.
Then add up all the jet fuel zero and MO use commandeering AF jets to fly everywhere, FOR FREE, and figure how many summer trips to the Grand Canyon or the coast those gallons could fuel how many American families who are forced to STAYcation under zero.
Exchange dollars for non-perishables. Inflation is coming. All that money the Fed has been printing won’t sit on the sidelines forever. (imo)
I’m buying toilet paper. I think it will hold it’s value better than the dollar.
As I pump my gas I write, “Hows that Hope and Change thing working for ya?” on the pump.
It makes me feel a little better... Sort of.
Release the pond scum reserves now!
Doesn’t seem to be hurting Obambi’s numbers.
Record gas prices and Obama’s numbers rise.
Rasmussen has his approval up to 50% now with a -10 daily strong/strong rating (his best in 10 months).
It’s amazing. If this were a GOP prez, every story every minute (from the media) would be pounding him and his approval would be in the low 30s.
Must be nice not to be blamed for anything.
And from the Partisan Media Shills? Disseminate agitprop from Zero or one of his fellow gangsters.
Are good I know,
Because dear leader
Told me so...
