“After a blistering week of gas prices jumping in nearly every town, city, state and area possible, more bad news is on the horizon. It now appears not if, but when, we'll hit that psychologically critical $5 national average," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. "Gasoline inventories continue to decline even with demand softening due to high prices, a culmination of less refining capacity than we had prior to Covid and strong consumption, a situation that doesn't look to improve drastically anytime soon. Nine states have average gas prices that stand beyond the $5 per gallon mark, with more set to join in the days and weeks ahead. In addition, diesel prices also stand at a record high, a second gut-punch to consumers which pushes prices of most goods higher."

How much difference does a state line make?
In Bullhead City, AZ you can pay as little (?!) as $4.43/g at Sams Club or $4.45/g at FastTrip for gas. Cross over to Needles, CA and pull into the Mobile station, and prepare to pay $6.99/g instead. Yikes!
In Quartzite, AZ, you’ll pay $4.73/g at Loves, but cross over into CA and pull into the Chevron in Blythe and pay $7.09/g. The highest price in Quartzite is just $5.09/g.
