The average price of a gallon of gas went up 13 cents this past week. Iowa Department of Agriculture analyst, Harold Hommes, says the increase is a little puzzling.
Hommes says people seem to be traveling more recently as witnessed by the use of nine-point-three million barrels of oil a day last week.
Hommes believes the gas prices won’t continue going up that much more. The average price for a gallon of gas in Iowa was three-dollars-58-cents a gallon, while the average price nationwide was eight cents higher.
