Gas prices continue to climb toward the $2 mark in Alabama.
Prices are up eight cents in the last two weeks and right now the average in Alabama for regular unleaded is $1.93 per gallon. The nationwide average is $2.18. Analysts point to slowly rising crude oil prices and the cost of switching to the summer blend of gas.
Prices are expected to go up a few more cents in the next few weeks.
