ON THE RISE: Gas prices increase in the area

FORT WAYNE (Aug. 12, 2014) -- Gas prices have fallen nationally, but that is not the case for Fort Wayne and the surrounding areas. Average retail gasoline prices in have risen 11.1 cents per gallon in the past week. Patrick DeHaan with GasBuddy.com says the hike is likely due to refinery issues and planned maintenance, but as the driving season concludes, prices are likely to drop- most significantly in late September through the holidays.
