"Gas prices are only a penny away from topping the $2.67 high of 2017", said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. The least expensive gas price averages in Tennessee were in Memphis at $2.40, Knoxville at $2.43 and Chattanooga at $2.44. California's average gas price has jumped to $3.52, compared with $2.99 a year ago.

Kern County prices ranged between $3.551 and $3.479 per gallon, according to AAA. That's 17.9 cents higher than it was a month ago on March 13. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.67, which is one cent more than this day last week and 27 cents more than the price per gallon at this same time past year.

GasBuddy analyst Patrick DeHaan said the gasoline price has followed oil price trends, which are up largely because the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and Russian Federation have scaled back their oil output.

"Though no president can control gas prices, I think some of the rhetoric coming out of the White House is concerning because it's inflicting unnecessary trauma on the economy", DeHaan said.
