Gas Prices On Their Way Back Up
With the busy summer season approaching, refineries are shutting down for maintenance to prepare for the expanded workload and the result of shut downs is a spike in our price at the pump for gas. Not to worry though, says AAA spokesman Don Redman, prices are currently averaging $1.58, and even with the increase are still expected to stay well under $2.00 a gallon. Some may grumble, but we are still enjoying prices averaging $2.00 a gallon less than we paid not so long ago. Still, since every penny counts in today's economy, fill up now, while the average gallon of gas in Louisiana is $1.58.
