Gas prices are beginning to fluctuate across the country.

The average price of a gallon of gas has jumped seven cents over the past two weeks, and now stands at $1.84 per gallon, according to ABC News.

Despite the increase, the price is still 70 cents per gallon cheaper than it was a year ago.

Industry analysts say the price hike is due to growing demand for gasoline across the nation, as well as higher crude oil prices.

According to AAA, the average price in Buffalo remains at $1.90 a gallon.
