(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The price of gas could soon eclipse $4.00 per gallon locally.
Many stations in Indianapolis took motorists there by surprise Monday by posting $4.17 for regular unleaded.
It did not take long for the trend to reach southeast Indiana. One motorist reported $4.17 a gallon at a station in Versailles Tuesday morning.
Tri-state stations are charging an average of $3.90 a gallon according to tracking website CincyGasPrices.com. That’s up about 15 cents in the past week.
Stations in Harrison and Florence are at $3.99 Tuesday morning. Folks living in or visiting southeast Indiana may want to fill up at stations along U.S. 50 in Lawrenceburg, Greendale, and Aurora where prices are around $3.89 for now.
If the local average price goes another 19 cents higher it would surpass the previous Cincinnati area record of $4.08 set in July 2008.
