According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), total domestic gasoline stocks decreased while gasoline demand increased which has played a part in the increase but the rising price of crude oil has played a dominant role in the increase.

According to AAA and the EIA, the tension between Russia and Ukraine continues to contribute to rising crude oil prices and AAA expects pump prices to continue to follow suit.
