Gas prices have been as low as $2.05 but the average has been $2.24 per gallon since June 1. Averages ranged from $2.11 a gallon on the low end to up to $2.19 a gallon at two locations.

"Although we're still experiencing relatively affordable gas prices across Kansas, compared to the national average and compared to recent years, strong gasoline demand has driven our continued increase in prices at the pump this summer", said AAA Kansas spokesman Shawn Steward.

In nearby Riverside and San Bernardino, the average cost of gas was $2.90 per gallon.

In other energy futures trading, wholesale gasoline rose 1 cent to $1.61 a gallon, while heating oil was little changed at $1.63 a gallon.

Prices in Kenton were up slightly as well this week. "This should prevent any major gains in gas prices, unless oil prices rise in response to unexpected disruptions in supply due to worldwide conflict, refinery issues, or a hurricane".
