CHARLOTTE – Gas prices have gone up another nickel on the week across the Carolinas and most motorists are paying more at the pump than they were this time last year, according to AAA Carolinas.
North Carolina’s $2.46 average is up five cents on the week, 19 cents on the month and is two cents more than this time last year. Charlotte averaged $2.44 on March 20, $2.37 on March 13 and $2.21 on March 20, 2018.
“Since early February, gasoline demand has been steadily increasing while stocks have been gradually decreasing causing more expensive pump prices across the country,” said Tiffany Wright, AAA Carolinas spokesperson. “This week, we officially passed last year’s prices.”
