CHARLESTON, W.V. (AP) - West Virginia motorists are paying a nickel more for gas this week compared to last week.
According to AAA's Fuel Gauge, the average per-gallon price for self-serve unleaded gasoline is $3.34, compared to $3.29 last week.
AAA says 91 percent of holiday travelers are driving to the year-end celebrations, even though gas prices are almost 20 cents higher nationally than they were a year ago. The national gas price this week is $3.23 per gallon. That's the lowest gas prices have been since February, when national gas prices were $3.12.
Average gas prices in the state range from $3.39 in Parkersburg to $3.29 in Weirton.
