HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

As the winter storm approached, gas prices around the valley shot up. Some stations went up ten cents per gallon over night. Analysts said to get used to it.

Gas prices traditionally rise in late February and early March with refineries scaling back production and working the summer blend. This year, the price of crude has gone up eight percent, now back at $100 a barrel.

The nationwide average is $3.34 a gallon. In Alabama, it's $3.14, which is up four cents from last week. However, these average figures are usually a couple of days behind the real prices we see on the streets.
