You can kiss $2 gas goodbye: Here's why low pump prices are creeping higher

Sub-$2 gasoline is evaporating.

The number of stations selling fuel for less than $2 a gallon is shrinking as spring price spikes take effect.

The national average price of gas has jumped 17 cents in the last month to $2.45, according to AAA.

That figure is likely to increase by another 15 to 25 cents in the coming weeks, says Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at fuel-tracking app GasBuddy.

2. Not where I live

Regardless any increase affects us all.

3. Gas always goes up in the spring.

Goes up in March, April and May and falls in October, November and December.

5. A lot of that is seasonal.

Generally, prices for crude oil and gasoline RBOB (Reformulated Blendstock for Oxygenate Blending) tend to increase in the spring and summer, then start falling in the autumn and winter.
