MISSISSIPPI (WDAM) -

Mississippi drivers are fumbling for their pocketbooks as gas prices continue to rise.

In Jackson, Mississippi the cost of a gallon of regular gas is $2.10, a five cent increase from last Monday. According to AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report that same gallon is $1.04 cheaper than a year ago, but after buying gas for $1.88 a gallon last month, consumers are noticing the difference. 

The national average has reached $2.03, causing price increases for 28 days, the longest streak in nearly a year, according to AAA. 

AAA officials report that “refineries are in the midst of conducting seasonal maintenance, a process that can limit fuel production and contribute to the rising pump prices.”
