Gas price watchers now agree that the average price of a gallon of gas in the U.S. has reached a major milestone; $5.

GasBuddy first made the announcement about the record-setting mark on Thursday morning. As of Saturday, AAA reports the same.

According to AAA, the average price of gas in Virginia is $4.83 with North Carolina's average not too far behind at $4.66.

2022 has already been a record-breaking year in terms of gas prices.

According to GasBuddy data, the national average price of gas broke the $4 per gallon threshold on March 5.

Two days later, the national average broke another record and reached $4.10 per gallon.

Another record was set in late April when diesel prices reached $5.16 per gallon.

Petroleum analysis expert at GasBuddy, Patrick De Haan warns that prices could worsen throughout the summer if refineries face unexpected issues, including major hurricanes.
