Gas prices on the rise nationwide


The upward climb of gasoline prices in Louisiana continues. Gas prices have risen 4.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.23/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 2,436 stations. Gas prices in Louisiana are 25.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago, yet stand 6.4 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

“As predicted, gas prices advanced across much of the country for the fourth straight week even as oil prices held relatively stable at $56 per barrel,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.
