Gas prices are increasing for the first time in four weeks

Gas prices are increasing for the first time in four weeks. AAA Auto Club reports the average cost nationwide is $2.36/gallon – two cents more than a week ago, which is still six cents less than a month ago, but eight cents more than a year ago. The increases are likely the result of rising demand and crude oil prices. At least 36 states saw price increases on the week. The rise in road travel could pressure pump prices to continue to increase into the summer months, potentially returning to the higher national averages seen in April. According to Gas Buddy dot com, here in the Bryan area, we’re seeing much lower prices than the national average. Many outlets are selling regular grade gasoline for 2.19 a gallon.
