Why are gas prices higher?

Alyssa Saurer of Ayr fills up Wednesday in Hastings.
Gas prices have risen to as high as 3.99 per gallon for
super unleaded.

Gas prices have once again taken an upward turn in Nebraska, where the average price for regular unleaded rose to $3.99 at most stations in town this week.

The ascent may not be over, either. Experts predict prices could eclipe the $4 threashold by Sunday.

“More than likely, that’s the way it’s going right now,” said Jerry Hoff, vice president of operations for Uncle Neal’s. “But I think it’s going to be a short-term deal.

“The last time it was over $4 a gallon was about a year ago for just a few days, then it dropped back down. I think the same thing is going to happen again.”
