HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Kansas gas prices are on the way up again.
"Kansas gas prices, after dropping last week for the first time in a few months, are back on the rise, albeit just a slight amount this week," said Shawn Steward with AAA Kansas.
The state's price is up one cent, as is the national average.
"Kansas is at $2.66 a gallon," Steward said. "The national average is at $2.87."
That puts Kansas at the ninth-cheapest price in the country again this week.
"Reno County is at $2.70 a gallon, so a few cents higher than the statewide average," Steward said. "Sedgwick County is at $2.59, so it's a little bit less than the statewide average."
Harvey County is at $2.61, McPherson at $2.64, Rice is at $2.72, Pratt at $2.73 and Kingman at $2.77.
