Washington, D.C. – At the start of May, the national gas price average is $2.90, which is three cents more than a month ago.
Pump prices in April saw minimal variability compared to March, which increased 15 cents from start to finish. Stable crude oil prices amid fluctuating demand helped keep the national average price jumps nominal last month.
Washington, D.C. – AAA says that despite gasoline demand mostly increasing this month, the national gas price average has seen little movement, fluctuating up or down by only a penny to $2.86 or $2.87.
In fact, 10 of the past 12 days saw a steady hold at $2.86 despite demand reaching its highest measurement—8.9 million b/d for the week ending April 9th—in more than a year.
Pasadena, CA – NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California is providing the instrument that will enable a nonprofit organization called Carbon Mapper to pinpoint and measure methane and carbon dioxide (CO2) point-sources from space.
The data collected by the instrument will help to find super-emitters – the small percentage of individual sources that are responsible for a significant fraction of global emissions of methane and carbon dioxide.
Washington, D.C. – At $2.86, the national average has decreased week-over-week for the first time since November of last year. Today’s average is two cents cheaper on the week. Since last Monday, 45 states also saw their averages decrease or no change at the pump.
“Growing stock levels and cheaper crude oil prices are putting downward pressure on pump prices for the majority of motorists,” said Jeanette McGee, AAA spokesperson.
Washington, D.C. – After weeks of seeing almost daily increases, the national gas price average is showing signs of stability, holding steady at $2.88 for the last 5 days.
Still, today’s average is the highest price since May 2019 and is more expensive on the week (+2 cents), month (+25 cents), and year (+74 cents).
Marsha Blackburn Demands Answers on Concerns over President Joe Biden’s Blue State Bailout Funded Trips to Hawaii
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) are demanding answers about reports that California school officials are considering using COVID-19 relief funding for taxpayer-funded vacations to Hawaii and teacher bonuses.
“We need a full accounting of how taxpayer funds are being utilized to reopen schools,” said Senator Blackburn. “These funds should be used for one purpose – getting children back in class. Instead, the teacher’s unions are forcing schools to remain closed, while officials are doling out bonuses and reportedly planning taxpayer-funded vacations to Hawaii. I’m sure these parents whose children have been learning from home for the past year would enjoy a free trip to Hawaii.”

Washington, D.C. – Nearly 100 years ago, suffragists gathered together in the Nashville Hermitage Hotel to fight for the right to vote. These women weren’t just activists. They were mothers, wives, and sisters bonded by one common goal—equality. Their efforts pushed Tennessee to be the 36th and final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment.
While the conversation of equality continued after earning the right to vote, that debate bears little resemblance to the rhetoric we hear today. The current debate favors mandatory, sweeping societal change far from the equal rights these Nashville suffragists established. H.R.5, the Equality Act, proposed by House Democrats is a prime example.
Washington, D.C. – AAA says Gas prices continue to increase, with the national average up nine cents on the week to $2.72. That is a 30 cent increase from the beginning of February, 28 cents more than a year ago, and the most expensive daily national average since August 2019.
The latest price jumps are a direct result of February’s winter storm that took 26 U.S. refineries offline and pushed refinery utilization from an average of about 83% down to an atypical low of 68%, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

AAA reports Substantial Increase in Gasoline Demand Has Little Immediate Impact on Supply Levels or Pump Prices
Washington, D.C. – According to the latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) measurement, gasoline demand jumped from 7.53 million b/d to 8.11 million b/d. Typically a significant increase in demand results in a comparable decrease in supply, ultimately translating to more expensive pump prices.
Surprisingly, the recent large jump in demand had little impact on gasoline supply and minimal impact on pump prices.
