The average price in the state is $2.48 per gallon of regular, an increase of five cents from last week and nearly 22 cents from March.

Local prices are 17 cents higher than a year ago. Prices are 30 cents higher than a year earlier statewide, according to the GasBuddy website.

"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, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

Anchorage- $3.12/g, up 3.6 cents per gallon from last week's $3.09/g.

A new report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) says the average cost of a gallon of regular unleaded gas will hit $2.74 a gallon this summer.

"In the past few years, the average date that gas prices have peaked is mid-May, which is just around the corner, and by all metrics, that could be very close to what we expect this time around", DeHaan said.
