Gas prices are up again this week. According to Marie Dodds at Triple A, the price of crude oil continues to be the driving force behind the rise. Dodds says there is hope that officials won’t let crude get to 2008 prices of about $4.00 a gallon, because they remember what that high price did to the economy in 2008.  Right now, the State average translates to about $3.17 a gallon up and down the I-5 corridor in Oregon. Diesel prices are higher too, with an average of $3.42 a gallon. In Bend, you'll pay about $3.10 for a gallon of gas.
