Cheapest gas in Seminole

Cheapest gas in Seminole

Seminole -  The average price of gasoline in the U.S. is gradually making its way toward $4 a gallon, and with the start of summer driving still a month away, is less than a dime from that psychological barrier.

Gas prices continue to soar.  In fact they've risen 6-cents in the last week alone.

The average price of self-serve regular gas today is $3.909 a gallon, up from $3.846 seven days ago, according to AAA's Fuel Gauge Survey. The price is up more than 31 cents a gallon in the last month.
