SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – (DRG News) This week’s average price for regular self-serve gasoline is said to be the highest it’s been since late June. AAA South Dakota says the gas price on Tuesday was $3.65, which compares to the previous high of $3.64 which was noted June 25. Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota says the statewide average fell steadily after May 22 when it reached its 2013 high of $3.97. Prices over the Fourth of July weekend averaged about $3.55. Now, Buskohl says the gas price roller coaster is headed upwards again. She cites the reason for the upward trend as unrest in Egypt and falling U.S. crude oil inventories. The national average price Tuesday for regular gas was $3.64 per gallon and that average has reportedly risen for several consecutive days. AAA says the national average is still .47 cents below the all-time high of $4.11 per gallon, which was recorded on July 17, 2008.
