FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Gas prices keep creeping up in Fort Wayne.

The price of a gallon of regular unleaded rose a little more than a dime in the past week to an average of $2.56 per gallon, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 201 gas outlets in town.

The national average went up about 4 cents to $2.36 per gallon.

Including the change in prices in Fort Wayne during the past week, prices yesterday were still 3 cents lower than the same day a year ago, but they’re 37 cents cents higher than they were a month ago.

Comparatively, gas costs $2.53 per gallon in South Bend, $2.60 per gallon in Kalamazoo, and $2.61 per gallon in Toledo.

“The first week of the summer driving season saw the national average price of gasoline rise by less than 4 cents per gallon, but some states saw much greater volatility resulting from regional refinery setbacks and/or wholesale fuel spikes,” said Gregg Laskoski, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.

“Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Michigan saw their respective state averages increase from 5 to 10 cents per gallon in recent days; impacted by an unplanned outage at Detroit’s Marathon refinery and a jump in Chicago wholesale which closed the week at the highest price level in the country.”
