The Best and Worst Day to Get Gas For Your Car

The Best and Worst Day to Get Gas For Your Car

He also tweeted another sobering reminder for drivers: "You're going to hate me for this #California, but if it wasn't bad enough, your state gas tax will rise 5.6 cents per gallon in less than 90 days". "We generally see more volatility and higher prices later in the week".

While Monday is the best day to fill up, in most states Friday is the worst... but just by a nose. That's up 14 cents from a week ago and 38 cents from a month ago.

Monday is also one of three days - alongside Sunday and Tuesday - when wait times at the pumps are shortest, according to GasBuddy.

An unfortunate series of events - flooding in the Midwest, the shift to summer blend fuel and refinery fires in California - have all contributed to the spike in prices, according to the Automobile Club of California.

GasBuddy analyzed gas price data from January to March for 2019 and found that the first day of the work week offers the lowest average gas price in 30 states, making it the best day to fill up.

The cheapest place to get gas in the state is in Lamont, south of Bakersfield, where gas on Monday morning was a reported $3.13 a gallon, DeHaan said. It brings the potential for $4-per-gallon gas closer than it has been for quite a while in Western Washington.

On Mondays, some prices tick upward in the afternoon, so it's often a good idea to fill up in the morning.

Experts predict prices won't be coming down anytime soon.

"Gas prices are increasing across the country, but these changes vary by region", said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Gas prices seem to fluctuate each week without warning.
