(News/Talk 1480 WHBC) – So much for those lower gasoline prices.

Gas is up about 20-cents from a week ago in the Canton-Massillon metro area according to AAA, averaging $2.84 a gallon on Wednesday morning.

That’s even higher than the statewide average price, which was $2.77 a gallon.

Increasing demand gets some of the blame.

Diesel was managing to stay at just below $3 a gallon.
