Thanksgiving was supposed to be the end of the increase in gas prices. It turns out that things are not going that way at the moment.

The average price for a gallon of gas in South Dakota is currently sitting at $2.10. That is three cents higher than a week ago in the Mount Rushmore State. A month ago the price was $2.09 while the average price one year ago was $2.51.

“Gas prices were predicted to decrease following the holiday, but robust gains in crude oil prices and the OPEC  decision to increase production next year led to at a number of states seeing pump price jumps of 3 to 12 cents,” said Marilyn Buskohl, AAA spokesperson said in a press release. “Even with the weekly jumps, gas prices remain relatively cheap with 15 state averages at $2/gallon or less.”

In Sioux Falls the average price for a gallon of gas is $1.99 per gallon. That is one cent higher than a week ago and one-cent lower than it was a month ago.

As per usual the cheapest gas in town is at Costco for $1.86. The Holiday on West 12th Street and the Casey's on East Benson Road are both selling gas for $1.89 per gallon.

Gas prices in the Black Hills have also gone up a bit. The average price for a gallon of gas in Rapid City is $2.32, three cents higher than last week.
