(Philadelphia) -- AAA reports the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has surpassed three dollars a gallon for one-thousand consecutive days.
The streak began December 23rd, 2010.
AAA Mid-Atlantic's Jenny Robinson says prices have been well above $3.00 for much of the streak.
"We have been at $3.25 per gallon or higher for 913 total days, so we've really not just been at $3.00, but really way above $3.00 for most of the past three years," she explains.
The statewide average for gas prices has been hovering around $3.57.
Barring a major economic recession, AAA forecasts the national average will remain above three dollars for at least another one-thousand days.
