Gas prices 50 cents more than this time previous year, AAA says

In California and Hawaii, gas prices are approaching $3.70 a gallon, almost a dollar higher than the national average. In Maine, prices have risen 4.2 cents per gallon to an average price of $2.86.

Crude oil prices were back up to start the new week, rising over $71 per barrel Monday morning.

"If the price goes down a little bit for whatever reason, then we could see it staying about the same-now, keep in mind we're looking at some of the highest gas prices we've seen since 2014 right now", said Grant.

Gas prices will likely continue to rise this week, but likely at a slower pace than the 6-cent rise seen this week.

Experts Warn New Bugs Could Expose PGP Emails
It's believed that the vulnerabilities exist in the email clients themselves, rather than the PGP encryption protocol. This is then encrypted with the sender's private "key" and decrypted by the receiver using a separate public key.

On the plus side, AAA says airfares are down seven percent as compared to last Memorial Day, with an average price of $168 for a round-trip flight along the top 40 domestic routes and auto rental prices are down 11 percent.

Arizona is poised to join the $3/gal club as it stands at $2.99 Monday, while NY sits nearby at $2.98. The price in Rhode Island has increased 32 cents since the middle of March.

According to GasBuddy, states where prices moved most last week were: OH (up 15 cents); DE (up 11 cents); Michigan, Florida and Wyoming (up 10 cents); and Minnesota, Kentucky, Missouri and West Virginia (up nine cents).
