W.Va. gas prices jump 16 cents
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Gas prices have jumped 16 cents in the past week across West Virginia.
AAA East Central says the price for a gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline averaged $3.67 this week.
Prices range from $3.63 in Charleston and Parkersburg to $3.72 in Martinsburg.
A year ago, prices in West Virginia averaged $3.60.
Nationally, average prices rose 17 cents per gallon this week to $3.53. AAA says recent increases are due to higher oil prices, refinery issues and preparations for switching to summer-blend gasoline.
