"Gasoline prices have increased in all fifty states in the last week as refineries continue working toward cleaner, more expensive gasoline and as oil prices have continued creeping higher," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "There shouldn't be any surprises that prices continue to migrate higher given the warnings in the past few months, thought that doesn't make it any easier for motorists to digest higher gas prices. Unfortunately as seasonal issues continue to weigh on markets along with higher oil prices, it's likely we'll continue to be in this pattern for at least a few more weeks."
