Recent increase in gas prices brings state average to $2.61 a gallon
Posted on 5/16/2018 6:02:00 AM.

A recent six-cent rise in gas prices puts the state average at $2.61 a gallon for regular gasoline.  AAA fuel analyst, Don Redman, says multiple factors are all conspiring against the consumer. Redman says recent withdrawal from the Iran deal has negatively affected the market.    

“The market did react to the President’s decision to pull out of the Iran Deal. Adding sanctions back to Iran means tightening some of the oil coming out of that country.”
