According to data from AAA, the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded was at $4.89 on Monday in the Evergreen State, an increase from $4.81 the previous week.
The Center Square reported that the latest increase marks the 20th consecutive week of rising fuel prices for Washingtonians since the new carbon tax was implemented earlier this year.
The most recent increase was in the opposite direction from the national average, which decreased from $3.59 to $3.57 per gallon during the same time period.
Make sure to thank a WA state Democrat. Remember that they claimed gas prices wouldn't go up because of their carbon tax.— Ari Hoffman (@thehoffather) June 15, 2023
