Gas prices are at an all-time high for the first time in five years.
But you’re not likely to find any cheap gasoline this year at all.
The National Weather Service forecasts a range of average prices from $3.50 to $3,600 for regular unleaded, $3 to $4.50 for regular diesel, and $3 and up for unleaded and diesel fuel blended with premium gasoline.
Here are a few of the most popular types of unleaded gasoline for this price range.
Regular unleaded: $3 a gallon.
Regular diesel: $4 a gallon or more.
Premium unleaded (diesel blends): $4 to $5.
A gallon of regular unleade can cost as little as $1.50.
Diesel blends cost about $1 a gallon and can run $2 a gallon, according to the National Automobile Dealers Association.
There are some differences between unleaded diesel and unleaded regular.
The difference in the price of diesel fuel is typically between $2 and $2.50 a gallon more expensive than unleaded unleaded.
The same diesel fuel may run $3 or more cheaper in regular unleades.
Diesel fuel also is more expensive because of the higher amount of additives, such as sulfuric acid, that are added to it.
You may be able to get the cheapest regular unleading for less than the regular diesel.
