Refinery Issues Contribute to Gas Prices Rising by Nearly a Dime in Rockford

GasBuddy: Indiana saw biggest jump in gas prices last week

The Tampa area had the lowest average price for a gallon of gas at $2.29 with Jacksonville in a close second with the average price for a gallon of gas at $2.30.

The average daily gas price in the Detroit area is $2.62, representing a 22-cent increase from previous year. This compares with the national average that has increased 1 cent per gallon in the last week.

The price of gas has risen in both states since a year ago. Best price in Forney was $2.09 and a low of $2.16 in Kaufman.

AAA says that the increase in demand is likely the cause because more drivers are on the road as they travel home from the holidays.

Hawai'i Unemployment Rate at 2%, Record Low
In addition to Alabama, states with the lowest unemployment rates included California, Hawaii, Mississippi and Texas in November. Nebraska's jobless rate improved in November compared with last year, ticking down to 2.7 percent from 3.3 percent a year ago.

Ohio's gas prices were down 7.6 cents since last week's average. The average price of gas is $2.55 in Hartford while the average price in Waterbury is $2.59 and overall in CT is $2.63. The New York State average is $2.62, down one cent since last week.

The highest price on record is $4.11 a gallon, recorded in July 2008.

Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, said following the heavy travel period over Christmas, gas prices could moderate in the days ahead.

But for most of the year prices remained between $2.10 and $2.40 a gallon and costs stuck as worldwide supplies were plentiful and American production strong.
