Gas Prices Rising In Valley

With Memorial Day Weekend and summertime right around the corner, drivers are already starting to feel the pain at the pump.
The temperature is rising and so is the price of gas--- people in the valley are seeing it near the four dollar mark.

"Summertime I guess," said Duane Parker of Robinson, IL. "Last year, it seemed like some of the holidays, they actually dropped. So I don't know what's making them go up this time."

Gas prices in the Valley vary so much that the Sunoco in Pimento is only $3.87 per gallon. Four miles down the road at the Farmersburg Sunoco, gas is $3.95 a gallon, an eight cent increase just miles apart.

Some drivers we talked to have a go-to fill-up spot.

"According to where I'm at. Here in town, I usually come right here because they're usually pretty competitive," Jack Daugherty of Sullivan, IN said.

For others, they may drive out of their way to save a few pennies per gallon.

"I've heard a lot of people say they'll drive twenty miles away to save a penny. You're going to spend that much getting there," added Duane Parker.

Jack says it helps him to have some perspective at the pump.

"I don't usually complain much about gas prices. I spent some time over in Africa and England and our gas is cheap compared to European countries."

Currently the average price for a gallon of gas in Indiana is $3.82 per gallon.

That's over a nickel increase from a year ago, when the state averaged $3.76.
