Rockford Gas Prices Rise for First Time in 4 Weeks

News
Rockford Gas Prices Plummet -- Now Close to National Average_-2833426747106310377

After three consecutive weeks of falling gas prices, Rockford’s rate increased this week by 3 cents.

That brings Rockford’s average to $2.29 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.com. That compares with the national average that increased 2.7 cents over the past week to $2.22 per gallon.

“Motorists were hit with rising gas prices in 33 of the nation’s 50 states, catching up with recent increases in crude oil prices, while the Midwest, stung from increases from the previous week, saw relief,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst.

Analysts say they expect price to continue to drop overall as we approach the holiday travel season.
