This Is the State Where You Pay the Most for Gas, According to Data

This state's drivers are paying the most at the pump, AAA data shows.

If you've noticed that you're paying more at the pump than usual, you're not alone—gas prices have skyrocketed in recent months thanks to a short supply and an increasingly high demand. In fact, according to the latest AAA data, as of Aug. 9, the average price of gasoline in the U.S. is $3.19 per gallon. That's more than a dollar over the national average at this time last year. With that in mind, we wanted to see which state has the most expensive gas in the U.S. Using the AAA data as of Aug. 9, we've ranked all 50 states by the average cost per gallon of regular grade fuel.

The prices are displayed as you would see at the pump with three decimal points after the dollar amount, since even fractions of a cent play a factor in where drivers choose to fuel up. Read on to discover which state has the most expensive gas in the country and how much a gallon costs where you live.
