LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Gas prices have been going up at some stations across Kentuckiana today.

A station at I-64 and Hurstbourne Lane went from $3.42 a gallon to $3.78 Monday. It looks like it will be the trend as we inch closer to Labor Day.

According to the Lundberg Survey, the average price of unleaded nationally has fallen $.04 over the past two weeks and is down $.20 from this time last year.

The average price of unleaded right now nationally is at $3.56 a gallon.

Economists say the lower pices are the result of prices for foreign oil.

The Lundberg Survey also says a further drop in prices is more likely than an increase.

According to GasBuddy.com, the average price in Metro Louisville is at $3.53 a gallon but prices are trending up. That’s the same as Kentucky’s average.

The average price in Indiana is just a few cents higher at $3.57 a gallon.
