$2.30 per gallon in 2017; $1.91 per gallon in 2016; $2.28 per gallon in 2015; $3.51 per gallon in 2014; and $3.52 per gallon in 2013. Lima's gas prices have gone up 7.3 cents since last month.

Thankfully, the bulk of refinery maintenance is likely behind us, but keep in mind the volatility of the stock market has had a major influence on gas prices in the past year, so we may still be susceptible to sudden and dramatic change in USA policy and also susceptible to any lingering maintenance at the large refineries.
