"The first week of the summer driving season is now under our belts, and we saw little change in gas prices nationally,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst. "Prices have seen little change and as we continue to progress into the summer, we're seeing gas prices now roughly the same as a year ago in many places.”
