Gas Prices Keep Going Up

It’s a cruel summer at the gas pumps. According to AAA, since Memorial Day weekend, the national gas price average has increased 13 cents to $3.17. That is 98 cents more than a year ago, but if you’re looking for any good news here, it’s 41 cents cheaper than this time in July 2014, when the national average was last above $3/gallon.

Missouri’s average price is $2.83; Arkansas’ is two cents more at $2.85, and in Tennessee, the price average is $2.88 a gallon.
