A day prior, on Friday, June 10, the national average price for regular gas was edging towards the $5 mark at $4.986/gallon.

The price of diesel is also breaking records at $5.765/gallon, according to AAA gas prices.

AAA says that the current demand increases due to summer and supply decreases, “coupled with increasing crude oil prices means that the price of gas will likely remain elevated for the near future.”

According to AAA data, the national average price of gasoline has jumped by 60 cents from just a month ago.
