Gasoline prices in Kansas are mostly stable, but expected to trend upwards.  According to a Triple-A survey,  prices in the state this week are up one cent from last week to $2.64 a gallon.  Shawn Steward with Triple-A/Kansas says prices have been up 20 cents in the past month.

“Now, we’re about 15 cents higher than we were a year ago,” said Steward. “Overall, we always have good news. We’re 20 cents less than the national average of $2.84.”

That keeps Kansas at 12th cheapest in America. Steward says geopolitical factors indicate prices are expected to rise. These factors include Monday's decision by the Trump administration to make the sanctions against Iran's oil exports complete beginning in May.

“Geopolitical issues around the globe always have the potential to impact our gas prices here in the U.S.,” said Steward. “Those sanctions are certainly something that we’re looking at.”
