Gas prices rise in Las Vegas

This compares with the national average that has increased nearly 2 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.65.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that the jump in gas prices in the past couple of weeks is the biggest price hike recorded by the Lundberg Survey since 2011.

The highest price reported in Valdosta Sunday was $2.72 at two locations, on West Hill Avenue and Cat Creek Road, while the lowest reported was $2.59 at a Norman Drive retailer, according to the price-tracking website

On Monday, prices were at $2.79 per gallon, 10 cents lower than the state average, which went up almost 4 cents per gallon over the same span, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 5,269 gas outlets in Pennsylvania.

Albany, meanwhile, has seen some impact, both from an influx of Floridians fleeing Irma and from local residents preparing for the impact of Irma as it worked its way through the region on Monday.

Suppliers "face an uphill battle in the coming days, trying to keep gas stations supplied, as Florida evacuees return home in large numbers after the storm", the release said.

That means, "motorists stand to benefit from falling demand, which will help refineries bring gasoline inventories back to normal and thus gas prices". That's good news. But AAA notes potential delivery delays due to Hurricane Irma could continue to put pressure on prices.
