W.Va. gas prices climb by a nickel

Jan. 03, 2013 @ 07:34 AM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Gasoline prices in West Virginia continue to climb.

Motorists in the state are paying an average of about $3.43 for a gallon of regular gas this week, a nickel more than a week ago.

AAA East Central says the year ended with an annual national average of $3.60 per gallon, topping last year’s record-setting price by nine cents.

This week’s average price in West Virginia is well above the national average of $3.29 per gallon. The lowest average price in the state can be found in Weirton, where a gallon of regular costs about $3.33.

The highest is Martinsburg at $3.49.
