Gas Prices On The Rise

Gasoline prices around Arizona are higher at the pumps this week

Gasoline prices around Arizona are higher at the pumps this week

The higher gas prices comes amidst rising tensions over a chemical weapons attack in northern Syria that is estimated to have killed more than 85 people on Tuesday.

"The party is over, for now", GasBuddy.com analyst Patrick DeHaan said in a blog post.

In a recent report by AAA, the association has reported that the average price for a gallon of unleaded gas is up from $2.11 as recorded last week. New Jersey's $2.34 is up 50.3 cents from past year.

"Syria produces very little oil and does not export to the world market". He said Thursday's late-night rise in oil came amid questions over future US military action in Syria. That tracks the average price increase at the national level. "We're definitely on an upward trend as we head into the summer gas season".

Prices averaged more than $3 a gallon in Hawaii, with California next at $2.99 per gallon, GasBuddy said. Last year's average this time of year was $1.95.

Howe Hoping Bournemouth 'Create History' At Southampton
Bournemouth have yet to win at Southampton , but they will never have a better chance of ending that sorry slice of history. Joshua King has eight goals and one assist in his last eight Premier League appearances for Bournemouth .

SC had the lowest average for regular, $2.09, followed by Alabama at $2.11 and MS and Tennessee at $2.12.

It's a trend happening nationwide and it's only going to get worse.

Motorists across the First Coast are paying almost 17 cents more on average than they were last week, according GasBuddy.
