Gas prices on the rise, could creep back down soon

Sky rocketing gas prices have become the reality in parts of the country and many drivers are furious. Unleaded gas in Hazard is up to $3.99 a gallon. In some places, it has gone up 10 cents in a couple of days. Some people said they are not sure how much more they can take. Despite the increased price at the pump, oil prices are down to $105 a barrel and the demand remains weak for crude oil. If crude prices continue to ease, experts said that should bring down gas prices. The cheapest gas found in Kentucky is in Carrollton at $3.58 a gallon and the most expensive is in Louisville, where it is $4.19 for an unleaded gallon of gasoline.
