According to AAA, people are paying more for gas in the U.S. than they have in seven years.
The national average for a gallon of regular gas stood at $3.22 on Wednesday – the most expensive it has been since October 2014.
Last year at this time, the national average for a gallon of gas was about a dollar less at $2.18.
