Gas prices continue their climb

What are you paying for a gallon of gas?

According to the Daily Fuel Gauge Report from AAA, whether you are in the District, Maryland or Virginia, you’re paying more than you did a week ago and probably more than you would have Monday.

The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded in the District now stands at $4.18, up from $4.079 a week ago. A year ago it was more than a dollar cheaper, $3.027.

In Maryland the average is $3.972, up from $3.89 a week ago and a comparatively low $2.868 last May.

The average in Virginia is lower than the two other jurisdictions, with a gallon of regular unleaded at $3.868. It was $3.793 a week ago and $2.804 a year ago.
