Gas Prices Rise 3.5 Cents In Chattanooga

In Sacramento, the average was $3.42 a gallon, a 16-cent spike in one month and nearly 52 cents higher than this time past year.

Locally, prices are lower, with the Lincoln average sitting at just under $2.63 a gallon and the state average at $2.59, according to AAA.

What's worse? While analysts are predicting a 15-cent surge this week, "Prices could rise even more, depending on how the crude market responds to the latest news of a US missile strike over the weekend", AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said.

"The rest of the country is adjusting to those higher wholesale prices and we just haven't gotten there yet", Jenkins said.

The report notes, "regional differences in retail gasoline prices can be significant".

"The seasonal surge at gas pumps is in full motion, causing the most dreaded time of year for fearful motorists, especially of what may still be coming", said Patrick DeHaan, spokesman for GasBuddy.
