UNDATED (WHTC) -- Just when you were starting to smile a little, thinking that the price of gas was going down, you are rudely surprised with the fact that prices have increased about 25 cents since this morning. There are still a few stations in the area that have prices below $3.30 but may have already increased to $3.49. Gas Buddy senior analyst Patrick DeHaan says it’s important to understand that these price hikes happen every week or two. He says the increases seem to be a little less each time and that's a good sign. Also, the stock market isn't the only thing affecting the prices. Hopefully, DeHaan is correct and we’ll see gas prices get lower sometime in the near future.
