W.Va. gas prices spike from last week

Jan. 30, 2013 @ 08:11 AM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The up-and-down pattern of gas prices is on the upswing again in West Virginia.

The Triple A’s weekly Fuel Gauge report on statewide pump prices finds that the price of a gallon of gas went up 8 cents this week.

The average $3.51 West Virginians are paying for a gallon of regular unleaded is 15 cents higher than the national average. The auto club says the higher pump prices have a silver lining. That’s because they rose in response to positive economic news.

Fuel prices in the state range from a low of $3.46 in Parkersburg to a high of $3.61 in Martinsburg.
