The average price of a gallon of gas is expected to rise to $2.46 this summer as oil prices bounce back, but that will stay below levels reached just a few years ago.

Last summer, prices at the pump averaged $2.23 a gallon. 

This summer’s expected hike reflects the 15 percent rise in oil prices over the last year. 

The Energy Information Administration says that translates into the average U.S. household spending about $200 more on gas.
