(Des Moines) Motorists will be taking a double take at the gas pumps this morning when they fill up. There was an unexpected 14-cent a gallon jump in gas prices overnight.
Gail Weinholzer with the Iowa Minnesota Triple A says it’s nothing to worry about. “We have seen crude oil on the national market in and or around $100 for the better part of the second half of this year and there is no reason to expect it to decline significantly. Three dollars a gallon is the new normal,”
She expects gas prices to come back down after the New Year.
