Iowa gas prices up after problem at Indiana refinery

Northwest Iowa – Gas prices have followed the temperatures and gone up in this week. Triple-A Iowa spokesman Brian Ortner says oil prices have gone up a bit, but there’s another factor impacting gas prices.

The price of regular unleaded gasoline was averaging more than three dollars a gallon across Iowa.

He says getting that refinery back up to speed will help.

The national average for a gallon of gas was up one cent to three-dollars, 27 cents.

As of Saturday, Triple-A Iowa says gas prices in the four-county area range from a low of $2.88 in Lyon County to a high of $3.01 in Sioux County.
