Higher Gas Prices

The national average for gasoline is at $2.97 a gallon that's according to Triple A.

We're about 25-cents higher than that, here in the stateline.

Why the spike? Experts say violence against oil workers in Nigeria, fears of tightening supplies worldwide, and new reports of refinery problems.

    Years ago, gas prices fluctuated with world events, but only when the higher prices of crude would get to the refinery. Not before. In this day and age, the refineries look for any reason to boost gas prices, so they get an increase in revenue while the cost is still lower. Quick to go up, slow to come down. I guess this is life.

    this totally upsets me because gas as of this morning was 3.19 then jumped to 3.29 and then again to 3.35. how is anyone supposed to get gas when its changed within an hour and you are stuck at work. for those of us with minimum wage jobs this takes a big chunk out of my check!

    These's gas prices are a big scam. Why do they go up after a holiday?

    High fuel prices are here to stay! People just need to make life changes to deal with the higher prices. Don't wait for the magic bullet to solve the problem.
