Gas prices see biggest one-day increase in a year
(CNN) - Gas prices just saw their biggest one-day jump in a year, bringing an end to the months-long calm in prices at the pump.
According to AAA, the national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline increased four cents on Tuesday to $3.64.
It is the biggest increase in a single day since June 7, 2022, and marks an increase of eight cents over the past week.
Even so, prices are still down by 72 cents a gallon from a year ago.
Last summer, they spiked to more than $5.00 a gallon.
Tuesday’s jump comes after an increase in oil prices, which have climbed to three-month highs.
