Gas Prices Rises 16 Cents a Gallon Nationally

WASHINGTON, DC (Ben Caxton) — Gasoline prices rose steeply over the past week, spiking by more than 16 cents a gallon according to Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg. The Lundberg Survey says the rise comes as supplies tighten while refineries undergo maintenance in advance of increased demand during the summer driving season. Even with the prices increases, however, customers are paying about the same for a fill-up as they were at the same time last year. The highest average price in the nation once again is in the San Francisco Bay area at $3.48 a gallon. The lowest average is $2.29 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The best prices found in Mississippi over the weekend were in Grenada, ranging from $2.06 to $2.11 a gallon. Cleveland has stations selling for as low as $2.26 per gallon, Greenville, $2.33, and Lake Village $2.38.
