Prices Monday were 91.8 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 21.6 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

"We're starting off March like a lion with little hope of it going out like a lamb," said Patrick DeHaan, analyst at GasBuddy.com. "I expect most of the country to flirt with prices near or over $3 per gallon come Memorial Day, with the exception of California, where prices will average near $3.35 per gallon."
