The national average for a gallon regular unleaded gas is $2.75.

While gas prices usually begin to rise this time of year, DeHaan says that the coming spike is "bigger than we've seen in recent memory". "... I believe the peak price that we face will likely be in the next month, then prices should trail off as long as there are no unforeseen issues". "It really is going to be ugly this week on the West Coast".

Friday is the busiest day, with - not surprising - 5:00 p.m. the busiest time.

Prices on average were slightly lower in the North and South counties, primarily sticking in the $3.50 to $3.90 range, with a few exceptions. While Saturday proved to be the most expensive day to buy gas in 16 states, the worst day for Michiganders is Thursday.

As for days to avoid, Friday has the most expensive average price of any other day of the week. Well, you can make sure you're filling up on the days when you'll get the most bang for your buck.
