According to AAA, the average price of a gallon of gas has reached $5 per gallon, the highest national average on record.
The new record-breaking price is more than double the cost of a gallon when President Biden took office when gas was just $2.25 per gallon nationwide and is now $1.93 higher than one year ago. Gas jumped more than 60 cents than this time just one month ago.
According to the most recent report from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics on inflation, the Consumer Price Index, gasoline increased 48.7% over the last year, one of the most significant factors in the nation’s ongoing inflation crisis.
The previous national record, recorded in 2008, for a gallon of gasoline was $4.67 per gallon, which experts say, adjusted for inflation today, would be the equivalent of $5.30 per gallon.
Fuel prices have continued to set record highs throughout the year, and this latest milestone is no different.
Gas price records set in 2022:
March 5: National average price of gas breaks $4/gal for the first time since 2008
March 7: National average price of gas breaks previous record; $4.10/gal
March 10: Average price of gasoline peaks at $4.35/gal
April 29: Average diesel prices reach new all-time high; $5.16/gal
May 5: March record broken; prices rise above $4.35/gal
