CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – As GasBuddy predicted a few days ago, gasoline prices across the nation have taken a big jump up, including here.

The AAA average price for regular Friday morning in Stark County was $2.58 a gallon, up 27-cents in the last week.

The ice and snow storms down South are getting some of the blame.

Price averages for the state and country are also around $2.60.
