Gas prices on rise

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Gas prices increased slightly in the last week, but Savannah-area prices are still lower than last month or even the year-earlier period.

The average retail price of gas in Savannah rose 5.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.32 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy data of 262 gas outlets in the Savannah area.

Including the change in gas prices in Savannah during the past week, prices on Sunday were 5.4 cents per gallon lower than the same day ayear ago and 2.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.

The national average price of gas increased 4.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.29 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.com.

The national average has increased 4.0 cents per gallon in the last month and is 2.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day a year ago.

"The sub $3/gallon gas was great while it lasted, but unfortunately it has nearly completely dried up," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan in a statement. "As of late Sunday night, zero states were seeing their averages under $3/gallon. As the New Year rolls in, this is a type of trend that we're used to seeing. The bottom is behind us and prices generally begin the New Year on a higher note, like they will again this year. The trend won't last forever though, as January and February feature generally weak demand that should limit increases and keep prices relatively moderate for the next month or two."
