Northwest Iowa — With unseasonably warm weather in the weekend forecast, Iowans might get out in their yards or toss a frizbee in the park, and they may notice one of the early signs of spring: higher gas prices. Here in Sheldon, gas prices saw an increase to $1.76 per gallon during the morning today (Friday, February 26th).
Gail Weinholzer, at Triple-A Iowa, explains why we’re seeing the bump.
If you got gas in the one-40s recently, savor that moment, as prices won’t likely be that low again anytime soon.
The motor club says Iowa’s cheapest gas is selling in Davenport at one-66, while the most expensive gas is in Des Moines, averaging one-78.
