Local gas prices have now risen every day for 13 days straight.
The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded is now $2.31. That's an increase of 27 cents over last month, when drivers were paying $2.04.
So why are gas prices rising, while crude oil prices are falling?
Consumer Advocate Charles Langley says the biggest contributing factors are: less competition for big oil companies and decreased demand for both products. He expects we'll see gas prices climbing back toward $3.00 a gallon come spring and summer.
"If we do, it'll show the oil industry has tremendous control over gasoline prices, because demand for oil is so low right now that it's going down. Oil prices are going down, and nothing's gonna stop it," added Langley
Langley says the disparity between gas and oil prices will continue to increase until oil companies face more competition.
