Gas Prices Still Elevated After Harvey
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Gasoline prices in Kentucky fell 3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.60, compared with the national average up 2 cents per gallon to $2.65, according to gasoline price website

Prices Sunday were 56 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 37 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. 

In Paducah, prices ranged from $2.56 to $2.59.

"Harvey may be long gone, but his wrath continued to drive gasoline prices up in much of the country in the last week. However, refineries are returning to production and fuel begins to flow once again from many Houston refineries," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy. 

"The national average gasoline price appears to have peaked last week Thursday at $2.67 per gallon and is beginning to slowly decline for the time being. With summer driving season over, falling demand will help refineries bring gasoline inventories back toward normal."
