Gas prices on the rise, still less than this time last year

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Gas prices continue to climb, jumping more than five-cents in the past two weeks.

The national average price for regular gas now sits around $2.50 a gallon.

According to the Lundberg Survey, the ongoing rise in crude oil prices is behind the increase.

But prices at the pump are still less than what they were a year ago.

Lundberg predicts a few more pennies at the pump soon.
