Triple A Mid-Atlantic spokesman Morgan Dean says the national average for a gallon of gas rose 11 cents since last week to $3.52. While domestic gas demand has been lackluster, rising oil prices helped push pump prices higher.   “Gas prices are a lot like seasonal temperatures. They start to rise with the arrival of spring, said Dean.   “And the national average for gas is now higher than a year ago, which we have not seen since late December.”

Dean says the national average of $3.52 is 25 cents more than a month ago and nine cents more than a year ago.  

Since last Thursday, these 10 states have seen the largest increases in their averages: Illinois (+21 cents), Indiana (+21 cents), Ohio (+18 cents), Maryland (+17 cents), Minnesota (+16 cents), Kentucky (+16 cents), Alaska (+16 cents), Wisconsin (+16 cents), Nebraska (+16 cents) and Oregon (+16 cents).

The nation’s top 10 most expensive markets: California ($4.95), Hawaii ($4.69), Washington ($4.37), Nevada ($4.26), Oregon ($4.14), Alaska ($3.92), Illinois ($3.91), Arizona ($3.73), Washington, D.C. ($3.63) and Michigan ($3.60).
