Gas prices 50 cents more than this time last year, AAA says

Including the change in gas prices in Arizona during the past week, prices yesterday were 60.8 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 19.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

Oil prices have continued to surge, leading to sharply higher prices at the pump, said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

That means access to their oil fields is cut off.

Metro Detroit's average gas price is about $2.94 - which is also an increase of seven cents from last week.

Local prices at the pump are still 34 cents per gallon below the USA average of $2.86 per gallon and remain the lowest among Tennessee's major metro markets, GasBuddy.com said.

The autoclub says that the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $2.93 per gallon.

In the Pittsburgh area, the per gallon price remained at $3.07, according to GasBuddy's survey of 731 gas outlets. Prices are about 52 cents more than at the same point a year ago. A strong economy is helping to fuel motorists along, as we approach the most traveled Memorial Day in more than a dozen years. MI ranked 16th in the nation for most expensive gas.

Huntsville- $2.57, up 0.9 cents per gallon from last week's $2.56.

Tucson- $2.77/g, up 1.4 cents per gallon from last week's $2.75/g.
