Remember last fall when gas cost right around two dollars? Yep, those were the days. Now you're paying roughly 38% more.

The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas in South Dakota is $2.73 as of April 15. That is 6 cents higher than a week ago and an astonishing 27 cents higher than a month ago.

“We are seeing very expensive gas prices for this time of year across the country,” said Marilyn Buskohl, AAA spokesperson. “Motorists are seeing prices increase as gasoline stocks decreased substantially by 7.7 million bbl amid summer-like demand readings.”
