Gas prices back on the rise

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio -- Drivers in the Ohio Valley are feeling the pain at the pump as gas prices have risen once again.

Average gas prices in Ohio rose .10.3 cents per gallon last week, averaging about $3.54 per gallon Sunday. That number represents 5.3 cents more than the national average.

“They need to make everyone have the same price of gas, whatever gas company it is, because each vehicle has different miles to go and people cannot afford gas hardly anymore,” consumer Becky Darios said.

Gas prices in Ohio were 15 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago, but are 25.7 cents higher than a month ago.

The national average has increased 12.5 cents per gallon during the last month and is 32.6 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

“They need to quit trading across and take care of our own people here more every day and stop worrying about other countries,” Darios said.

Darios says she lives 3 miles outside of Hopedale and gas prices seem to be fluid where she travels.

“Here, at this station (Clark on Miller’s Station Rd. in Hopedale), it’s $3.41,” Darios said. ”You go in toward Wintersville and Steubenville and the prices are different. I go to Carrollton quite often and the prices are different up there. Even clear to the mile marker it’s different, and I don’t know why because it’s all the same gas.”
