US Motor Fuel Price Overcome Katrina's Price Record

US motor fuel prices have hit an all-time record, breaking highs set after Katrina

US motor fuel prices have hit an all-time record, breaking highs set after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 , the American Automobile Association said Monday.

AAA said the average national price of unleaded regular gasoline jumped to $3.073 per gallon (81.3 cents per liter) over the weekend, the highest average it has recorded.

That shattered the previous national benchmark of $3.06 per gallon on September 5, 2005, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, AAA said.

"This is the worst possible news at the worst possible time," said AAA spokesman John Townsend.
