Gas prices on the rise again

After falling to a multiyear low of $3.18 per gallon last Tuesday, the national average price of gas has inched higher on seven straight days, according to AAA East Central, a nonprofit association with 82 local offices in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, New York and Kentucky.

Today’s national average at the pump — $3.21 per gallon — is three cents more expensive than one week ago, but it remains 14 cents cheaper than one month ago and 21 cents less than the same day last year.

Drivers in more than 30 states and Washington, D.C., are paying more for gasoline compared to one week ago, the AAA said.
