Gas prices have been on the rise for several weeks.

The state average in Indiana is now at $1.92 per gallon and that puts the Hoosier State right in the middle in the country -- with the 25th cheapest price.

Oil expert Trilby Lundberg says the reason prices have gone up steadily for several weeks is strictly a crude oil price issue.

“And this is pretty much penny for penny what crude oil prices have done,” Lundberg says. “Gasoline is following crude oil up.”

Lundberg says prices will likely rise in the next few weeks as refiners get ready to switch to their summer blend, which costs more to make.
