US gas price hits a record $5 a gallon: auto group

Quick Summary

A year ago, the average price of gas in the US was just $3.

Overall US energy prices in May were nearly 35% higher compared to the same month in 2021, according to government data.

That record level, coming on top of months of soaring inflation, represents the latest bad news for President Joe Biden just five months before crucial midterm elections.
