How gas prices have changed in Mississippi in the last week

Gasoline prices continue to rise across the U.S., contributing to fears that higher-than-usual inflation may be here to stay for a while longer.

Increases in the cost consumers pay for energy have been rising faster than inflation in other sectors over the last month. The average cost for a gallon of gas rose almost 20 cents per gallon in that time.

Lower supply brought on by reduced production by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, as well as geopolitical conflict in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, have driven the price of oil upward around 17% since mid-January.
