Arkansas Gas Prices Rising Sharply, but Still Below National Average

MARCH 5, 2007 - Posted at 3:36 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - In the span of about a month, gasoline prices in Arkansas have risen more than 30 cents per gallon.  The AAA says that prices in Arkansas are still 12 cents cheaper than the national average.

The AAA says the average price per gallon of self-serve unleaded gasoline in Arkansas today is $2.36.  That's up 33 cents from one month ago.  The national average is $2.48 per gallon, compared to $2.17 one month ago.

AAA spokesman Mike Right says prices at the pump are up because crude oil and wholesale gasoline have jumped.

Also, Rights says refineries are starting to switch over to more expensive summer-grade gasoline.
