Gas Buddy Says Prices at the Pump Will Rise

Posted: Updated:

Gas prices have been another big focus in our recovering economy. Right now, GasBuddy.com says the average price in Nevada is $3.15 a gallon.

Gas prices are about 26 cents lower than they were at this time last year, but Gas Buddy says these low prices will not stick around long.

According to a new report released by Gas Buddy on Tuesday, prices will start climbing nationally in March to about $3.67 a gallon. According to the same report, prices at the pump will really spike in April to just under $4. In the summer, prices will remain relatively high, hovering above $3.60 a gallon, before falling slightly by next winter. 

I asked some folks what they expect. The summer is what concerns most of them.

"Right now, it seems like it's going down, only because it's winter time. When summer comes, they're going to go up about $2, that's what I'm thinking. It's crazy," Tony Lopez of Reno.

"It probably will go up eventually," said Michael Berg of Reno. "I'm suspecting probably this summer."
