Prices on Sunday were 23.1 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and 12 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

$1.90/g in 2016, $2.20/g in 2015, $3.53/g in 2014, $3.33/g in 2013 and $3.78/g in 2012.

The national average price stands at its highest mark since September 5, 2015, mainly the result of oil rising $6 more per barrel over the past few weeks along with a decline in inventories and rising tensions in the Middle East, according to Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.

The highest prices in North Dakota were reported in the Williston area, with some gas stations in the northwest corner charging upward of $2.44 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.

According to the GasBuddy.com survey, the average rise in Chattanooga was 2.7 cents per gallon.

Gas prices average around $2.34 a gallon in all the major cities. That's about 37 cents more than it was at the same point past year.

"Gas prices rose on the wave of rising oil prices last week, pushing pump prices slightly higher in some regions before eventually stalling out over the weekend", said AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins in a prepared statement.

No state showed an average of below $2.00 a gallon Monday morning. Less than 0.5% of US gas stations are charging less than $2.00 a gallon as of Monday morning.

The best deal for gas 10TV could find is on $2.08 on Norton Road at Hall Road.
