Triple-A Reports that the statewide average cost of a gallon of gas went up eight cents over the last seven days to $3.52 a gallon.  That is also a 19 cent increase from last month at this time.  The national average went up five cents to $3.32 a gallon.  The main reason for the surge in prices is due to the price of crude oil, which has consistently stayed at over $80 a barrel.  By comparison, the cost for crude oil in August was $60 a barrel.  Comparing prices to last year, it’s costing consumers roughly $17 extra dollars to fill up your tank.

Indiana County’s average is $3.47 a gallon, and much like last week, it is the second-lowest average in the region.  Westmoreland County’s average of $3.45 a gallon is the lowest, followed by Indiana, then Armstrong at $3.48 a gallon.  Cambria county’s average follows at $3.50 a gallon, then Clearfield at $3.53 a gallon, then Jefferson at $3.55 a gallon.
