Local gas prices climbing back up as Christmas nears

With the Christmas holiday approaching, local gas prices are back on the rise.

Most gas stations in Russell County are selling at $2.89/gallon, as this week saw prices jump as much as 20 cents per gallon.

Prices are about the same as this time last year, with prices mostly falling in between $2.80 and $2.89 at this time last year.

According to AAA, gas prices are expected to fluctuate over the next week or two due to an increased demand during a heavy travel season along with elevated oil prices.
