STACKER (WBRE/WYOU) — The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline is $4.19—up seven cents this week compared to last.

Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in Pennsylvania using data from AAA. Gas prices are as of May 2. State gas tax data is from World Population Review.

For those whose careers are spent on the road like owner-operators—independent truck drivers who own their vehicles—filling their 250-gallon tanks for $1,300 can be prohibitive.

Experts warn that while drivers are currently feeling the pressure of the volatility of the global energy market, business owners and consumers will also start to feel this financial burden as higher costs are passed down the supply chain.

  • Current price: $4.35
  • Week change: +$0.14 (+3.4%)
  • Year change: +$1.34 (+44.3%)
  • Gas tax: $0.59 per gallon (#1 highest among all states)
