Radio Iowa: Gasoline prices at Iowa service stations have risen by as much as a dime a gallon in recent weeks. Mark Peterson at AAA-Iowa says that’s bucking the norm as prices are usually stable or falling during midautumn. “The price volatility can be attributed to a new trend that’s emerged during October in the last few years, and that’s an unexpectedly steady demand for gasoline at the end of the driving season. With prices still being somewhat reasonable, you’re seeing a lot more people starting to travel.” Gas prices in Iowa are averaging $2.52 a gallon, 2 cents below the national average.
