Gas prices nationwide have gone up nine cents in the last month. According to AAA, the average price across the country today is $3.16 a gallon.

Missouri stands at $2.79, up 15-cents in the last month. Arkansas’ average price has risen 13-cents at $2.76; Tennessee’s average is $2.84, a dime more than a month ago.

AAA reports seasonal demand trends, higher costs for oil, and routine refinery maintenance will likely push pump prices even higher soon.
