CHARLESTON - Drivers are paying a little more at the pumps this week, the cost of a gallon rose by about a penny.
The statewide average now sits at $3.41 per gallon. While West Virginia's gas price is still above the nation's average by seven cents, it's down 31 cents from the same time last year. AAA expects the cost of a gallon to drop in the upcoming months because of supplies, flat demand, and cheaper winter-blend gasoline.
The organization predicted a national average of $3.10 to $3.20 per gallon by Christmas.
