In 2011, the average gallon sold for an all-time high of over $3.50, and the average household spent $4,155 gassing up their vehicles—also a record. And if you were hoping for relief at the pump in 2012, it looks like you’re out of luck.
At this time last year, the average gallon of gas sold for under $3.10. Prices never got cheaper than that, peaking at $3.96 in May, according to GasBuddy.
