GasBuddy.com: Avg. price of gas rises 8 cents last week
The average retail price for gas in Sioux Falls has risen more than eight cents in the past week, according to GasBuddy.com.

Despite the increase, Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan said he still expects prices to come down—slightly.
"As we push deeper into September, the more optimistic I am that these high prices will begin to come down slightly," DeHaan said, "but with the recently announced QE3, I'm a bit concerned that prices won't moderate as much as previously expected as the dollar weakens, leading me to believe 2012 will have featured the highest yearly average ever."
