Lexington, like many other areas of the state, saw a new average price record of $2.286 for gasoline Monday, up from the previous record price of $2.281 set on July 13.
Drivers looking to fill up their tanks need to shop around, according to AAA. Currently, there is over a 30-cent price difference between some stations.
To help consumers locate the least expensive fuel, AAA Blue Grass/Kentucky offers the AAA Fuel Price Finder, available at www.aaabluegrass.com.
The data is derived from more than 85,000 individual stations throughout the United States, based on recent credit card transactions, and is the same information AAA uses to track national, state and local gasoline price trends.
"The availability of specific pump price and station location information is a breakthrough for consumers," said Lilla S. Mason, AAA spokeswoman. "Being able to regularly locate retail outlets with the lowest gasoline prices, without having to drive all over town, will be a helpful, cost-savings measure for motorists."
