GAS PRICES CONTINUE RISING

Gas prices are on the rise. They’re up 3.8 cents a gallon in the past week, bringing Alabama’s average to $2.48 a gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy.

In comparison, GasBuddy says the national average has increased 5 cents a gallon and averages $2.71 a gallon.

 

That means prices yesterday were about a dollar lower than the same day one year ago, but are 26 cents higher than just a month ago.

The national average has increased 27 cents a gallon during the past month, and stands at 94 cents lower than this day one year ago.

“The rise we’ve seen in the national average over the month is showing signs of fading,” says Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst.

The largest jump in gas prices have come in Ohio, Michigan and California, but all 50 states still have prices set lower today than one year ago..
