Increasing Gas Prices: How the recent arctic blast is impacting producers at the pump

The recent arctic blast hit gas prices.

For the first time in two months, the nation’s average gas price increased due to the inclement weather. AAA says the average price is $3.26, which is up $0.12 from last week. However, prices are still down more than $0.20 from a month ago.

Diesel prices are up sitting at $4.68 today. GasBuddy says the jump at the pump will likely be temporary as refiners get back online after dealing with colder weather issues.
