Turns out, "the case of the Mondays" isn't a thing when it comes to pumping gas.

Monday was also the best day to buy gas in 2017, according to a previous study.

Friday is the worst, at least in 19 states.

"The national average is now at its highest point since November 2014 with average gas prices advancing in almost every state", said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

"But when 49 of the nations 50 states are going up, there's a lot of factors that go into gas prices".

According to GasBuddy's study, an analysis of foot traffic data at gas stations across the country found the pumps are less busy on Sundays and Mondays - with Fridays being the busiest.

AAA spokesperson Jeanette Casselano said the current national average is not expected to reach the highs recorded in 2014, which averaged $3.34 per gallon and peaked in April of that year at $3.70. Friday is the busiest day.
