‘Slight uptick’ in gas prices as costs surge for 36th consecutive day

The cost of gas nationwide and locally rose again overnight, pushing prices higher for the 36th consecutive day.

AAA Mid-Atlantic described the price jump per gallon of regular, unleaded gas — 1 cent  in the District and less than a penny nationwide — as a “slight uptick,” according to a news release.

At $4.01, a gallon of gas in the District is well above the national average of $3.78 and inching closer to D.C.’s record high of $4.21, which was set in 2011.

Virginia also saw a slight increase, up 1 cent to $3.70 per gallon.

Maryland is the only local jurisdiction that saw a price decrease, dropping 1 cent from $3.85 to $3.84 per gallon.
