US gas prices set a new record

New record for gasoline costs in US

The cost of gasoline at gas stations in the United States on Thursday once again hit an all-time high, reaching $4.6 per gallon (3.785 litres). This is according to updated data from the non-profit American Automobile Association, which tracks prices at more than 60,000 filling stations nationwide.

According to its data, the average cost per gallon of Regular gasoline rose to $4.6 in the U.S. by Thursday morning. It is worth noting that on Wednesday this figure was $4.599. In all US states ahead of the holiday season, the price per gallon of fuel averaged more than $4 per gallon.

The highest gasoline prices nationwide have traditionally remained in California, where motorists will have to pay an average of $6.07 for a gallon of gasoline, with some filling stations costing more than $7 a gallon.

Petrol prices in the US have been rising steadily since the end of winter and have been rising steadily for a third week in a row, setting new records. The rise in fuel prices is occurring against the background of rising global oil prices, despite attempts by the White House to counteract the trend. At the same time a year ago the price of petrol was kept at $3 per gallon.

Also, WTI crude futures for July delivery rose $0.62 (0.56%) to $110.95 a barrel on Wednesday.
