The survey, by GasBuddy, found that Seattle gasoline prices have shot up by an average of 38 cents in the past month – with an increase of nearly 10 cents per gallon in the past week alone.
According to the survey, the average price in Seattle is now $3.48.
The cheapest station in Seattle is priced at $3.09 per gallon while the most expensive is $4.09 per gallon, a difference of $1.
Statewide, the average gas price is $3.34 per gallon. Tacoma comes in at $3.42 per gallon, while across the mountains in Yakima, the average price is $3.29.
The sharp increases are due to a series of refinery cutbacks and changeovers from winter gas blends to summer blends.
