Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — According to AAA, gas prices have increase by 20 cents in the past week. That's a 4 percent increase from this time last year.
Gas station managers in the area say the sudden increase for gas is not stopping drivers.
"People are still buying gas regardless of the gas prices, although some people are getting lesser amounts of gas due to the increase. It still won’t affect it as much; especially on the holidays,” said Mohammad Shahin who manages the Jubilee gas station in Bossier City.
An average price for a gallon of gas in the area currently sits at $3.33 per gallon.
