On the north side of Fort Worth, regular gas was selling at $4.49 per gallon at some stations, according to GasBuddy. Most stations on Wednesday morning were at $4.39.

Nearly every state is seeing $4 gasoline, primarily due to the high cost of crude oil.

“The high cost of oil, the key ingredient in gasoline, is driving these high pump prices for consumers,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “Even the annual seasonal demand dip for gasoline during the lull between spring break and Memorial Day, which would normally help lower prices, is having no effect this year.”
