Gas prices are the highest they’ve been since 2014

Hampden County

The national average price of gas is $2.81 per gallon.

A GasBuddy survey shows Monday is the most economical day to fill up, followed by Sunday. That’s also when gas stations are least busy.

Consumers worry that gas prices may get out of control.

“You always have those flashbacks of when it was really high when it was like $3 or $4 and it cost like $70 to fill my tank,” Sherilyn Herron of Springfield told 22News.

GasBuddy analysts say prices may be about a ten cents away from hitting a peak price before they start going back down by mid-June.
