Drivers in Pennsylvania have the largest increase in the new year of almost $.08 per gallon. The state is home to the nation’s highest state gas tax.

Michigan drivers have the second highest hike headed their way at $0.073.

Nebraska rounds out the top three with an increase of $0.015.

the remaining states will all see hikes of less than a penny per gallon.

The national average price for a regular tank of gas is $2.29/gallon says AAA.
