Local prices for a gallon of gas topped out at $2.89 a gallon Monday, almost a dime more than the state average of $2.80, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 5,269 gas outlets in Pennsylvania.

The state with the fifth cheapest gas prices at $2.31 a gallon is Arkansas, followed by Texas, at $2.31, Virginia, at $2.32, Tennessee, where a gallon will run an average of $2.34, Oklahoma at $2.35 and Missouri at $2.36. Gas prices were the same as last month's average and have increased by 41.7 cents from last year's average.

The lowest price in Miami-Dade was also $2.39 at two stations just off Interstate 95 in Miami - 7-Eleven on Northwest 79th Street and Exxon on Northwest 7th Avenue.

The rising price at the pump contradicts the usual trend of dropping gas prices during the fall season.

"Analysts warn that oil prices could be somewhat volatile this week, as the consolidation of power in Saudi Arabia leaves speculators questioning the impacts on global oil supply". The cost of a gallon of gas increased by nine cents in Gainesville and eight cents in Atlanta, AAA said.
