West Virginia's gasoline prices have risen an average of 7 cents in a 24-hour period.

Retail prices in the Mid-Ohio Valley have really gone up, thirty to forty cents a gallon, after having some of the lowest prices in the state.

According to AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report, West Virginia's average is currently $3.15 for a gallon of regular, but most rural areas the price is considerably higher.

A month-ago the average was $3.13 and a year-ago the average was $2.34.

The national average for a gallon of regular gas rose 2 cents from Monday to Tuesday to $3.03.

Gasoline prices have been fluctuating as the cost of oil has been drifting back up toward the record high of $100 a barrel hit in early January.
