About 30 states across the country saw gas prices go up in the past week, but the national average stayed steady at $2.86. Kansas is at $2.67. 

Shawn Steward with Triple-A says that between geopolitical and weather concerns, there's a lot of uncertainty in the fuel markets right now.

“It’s really hard to predict where gas prices are going to go from week to week, sometimes even day to day,” said Steward. “There’s just so many factors out there with the oil market, with OPEC, with the potential for supply distribution 
interruptions.”

The Atlantic hurricane season and particularly any storms that affect the Gulf of Mexico can cause delays in the supply chain in August and September. Here in Wichita prices went up to $2.69 early this week.
