Lansing gas prices have risen 10.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.91 per gallon, according to online price monitor GasBuddy.com.

Gas prices in Lansing are 29.0 cents per gallon higher than a month ago, yet stand 15.9 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Lansing is priced at $2.65 per gallon while the most expensive is $3.04, a difference of 39.0 cents per gallon.

The lowest price in the state today is $2.59 while the highest is $3.19, a difference of 60.0 cents per gallon.

The cheapest price in the entire country today stands at $1.82 while the most expensive is $5.29, a difference of $3.47. 

“The national average gas price has now risen for the ninth straight week, adding 57 cents a gallon in that time and now costing Americans about $200 million more per day than it did to start the year. The effect of rising prices isn’t about to let up as a spate of refinery outages on the West Coast and in California has given way to a tightening of summer blended gasoline in advance of the summer driving season set to kick in in the weeks ahead,” said Dan McTeague, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 7.4 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.83 today. The national average is up 28.7 cents per gallon from a month ago, yet stands 12.2 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.
