Gas Prices Continue to Rise

Gas prices in Mississippi continue to rise as we get closer to the summer driving season. The cost is up almost two cents from a week ago.

That's about the same rate of increase as the national average price for a gallon of gasoline.

Gas prices in Mississippi are currently about 73 cents per gallon higher than they were this time last year, and about seven cents higher per gallon than they were just a month ago.

According to, the average price in Mississippi and Alabama is $2.70 a gallon. That's about a dime lower than the current national average.

    You're right, Guy. Nobody cares about gas prices. It's not like it affects anybody. And why do they always talk about unemployment? It's not like anybody needs a job to live. Why don't they cut out all that old news? Give them your number, Guy, so they can call you and run their stories by you first, because you're the only one that knows anything!
