Gasoline Prices Reach $5 a Gallon Nationwide for the First Time

The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas in the US hit $5 Friday night, and the rise in fuel costs is expected to persist throughout the busy summer driving season.

The record high, according to OPIS, an energy-data and analytics provider, comes as US consumer inflation hit its highest level in 40 years and crude oil prices remain high.
