Gas Prices Could Peak in April

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

If you think you're paying more at the pump, you probably are.

AAA says the national average is $3.56 per gallon that is the highest since September 11, 2013.

A spokeswoman for the motor club says prices are up primarily due to seasonal factors such as routine refinery maintenance and the switch to summer-blend gasoline as well as rising demand.

Now the good news, AAA predicts gas prices will peak in April possibly around $3.65 per gallon.

The state with the lowest average gas price is Montana at $3.28.
