If you had to fill up your gas tank recently, you've probably noticed the price at the pump is on the rise - again.

Overnight gas prices here in the Casper area have gone up 10 cents per gallon.

Gasoline now costs an average of $2.85 for regular unleaded in Natrona County, this is still about 11 cents per gallon less than we were paying this time last year.  But current troubles with Iran, a shaky global economy, investor interest and scheduled maintenance at refineries across the country are all responsible for the current spike in gasoline prices from $2.56 a gallon, just a month ago.

Gas prices, which traditionally rise during spring after winter lows, are already moving their way up quickly.  At the end of February 2012, Casper residents were paying $3.09  for a gallon of regular gasoline.  Lets hope the recent spike in gas prices doesn't drive us back to that level in the next 3 weeks.

Casper gas prices range from $2.70 for a gallon of regular at Sinclair - 902 E 2nd street to $2.89 at the Conoco and Shell stations on the corner of F street & North Center street.
