JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Arkansans will be paying more at the pump according to new numbers from GasBuddy.com.

The site states the average price of gas in the Natural State has risen 7.3 cents in the past week, averaging $2.11 as of Sunday. The national average increased 7.6 cents per gallon to $2.25.

However, GasBuddy states the recent average is 103.1 cents per gallon lower than at this time 1 year ago. While the national average stands 110.2 cents per gallon lower than 1 year ago.

“Prices at the pump are starting to heat back up, mostly driven by a rebound in crude oil prices," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.

GasBuddy does a daily survey of 1,826 gas outlets in Arkansas.
