As national gas prices soar, Alabama motorists also are paying more at the pumps. Birmingham-based Triple-A Alabama surveyed gas stations across the state Monday and found prices up almost a full penny from last week's survey.
Regular unleaded averaged a dollar-85; midgrade fuels costs an average of nearly $1.98; and premium has a median price of $2.03 per gallon. The auto club said diesel averages $2.07 across the state.
Triple-A said prices have been steadily rising since they bottomed out at the start of the year around a $1.78.
A survey of the state's metro areas shows Birmingham has the cheapest average at a $1.83. Mobile and Huntsville are both at the opposite end of the scale at a 1.86.
