Gas prices rise for second week in a row


The average price of gas rose again over the past week, but people in Baton Rouge won't see a big increase in the amount they pay at the pump.

According to GasBuddy's daily survey, the price of gas rose about .6 cents per gallon to average $1.80.

"The four-month slide in gasoline prices has indeed come to a halt," said Gregg Laskoski, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy. "A reduction in refinery output has been matched in recent weeks by sharp increases in wholesale gasoline prices."

Nationally, the price of gas has risen 2.7 cents per gallon over the last week to $2.05.
