Gas prices jump nearly 21 cents in W.Va.

CHARLESTON (AP) — Gas prices have jumped nearly 21 cents in West Virginia over the past week on the heels of pipeline and refinery problems in the Midwest.

AAA East Central says the average price for a gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline in West Virginia is $3.73.

Prices range from $3.61 in Martinsburg to $3.87 in Huntington.

The price hike follows a pipeline rupture in southern Wisconsin last month and equipment problems that have closed parts of refineries in Indiana and Illinois. Michigan had a 34-cent jump in gas prices in one week, and prices jumped 33 cents in Illinois and Indiana, and 26 cents in Wisconsin.

Nationally, gas prices are averaging $3.63 per gallon.

A year ago, gas prices averaged $3.53 in West Virginia.

  1. Why is gas so expensive? Why is th price of gas not reflected in the over all inflation data.Just 8 years ago gas was 1.50 to 2.00. Yet all I here is that we are in a deflationary scenario. The real cost of business is not reflected and internet jobs do not produce Tomatoes or an increase in the standard of living.
