Gas prices in northern Indiana went up almost 20 cents per gallon this past week.

Gas prices in Warsaw range from $2.88 to $2.99 as of Monday morning, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of gas stations. The statewide average is around $2.92.

Prices are almost 48 cents higher than they were a month ago, and there’s a big difference in prices, depending on where you fill up.

Analyst Patrick DeHaan says the higher prices are due to Hurricane Barry’s impact on oil production in the Gulf, plus declining oil inventories.
