Gas prices inch up

Posted at 8:30 PM, Jan 28, 2019

Drivers may notice that it’s costing a little more at the gas pump.

The average price of regular gas is up two cents over the past week.

Prices are averaging at about $3.42 in San Luis Obispo County and $3.29 in Santa Barbara County, according to AAA.

Some southern and midwestern states will see the biggest increases this week,

Analysts say crude oil prices have increased since the beginning of the year, but low demand and an over-supply have kept gas prices relatively stable to this point.

Crude oil prices will determine if gas is cheaper or more expensive for consumers in the coming weeks.
