Prices at your local gas pump have taken quite a jump lately. Triple A Missouri reports prices have jumped nearly 20 cents a gallon in the last month and 50 cents a gallon in the last year in the state. Spokesman Mike Right says the kicker is, this should be the cheapest time of year. And, Right says with an uncertain future with issues in the Middle East and the Venezuela strike situation keeping oil exports from coming from that country, he does not expect to see prices fall anytime soon although he believes they will flatten out over the next few days.
