There is one negative symptom that Spring is just around the corner gasoline prices have been creeping up.
Or at least in Utah, they're not so much creeping as leaping. The statewide average for a price per gallon jumped 26 cents in the last month, according to AAA Utah. The average price is $3.35 per gallon, 14 cents lower than the national average of $3.49.
It's not just the usual warmer weather and the resulting rise in road trips to blame. Apparently, you also can point to tensions in the Ukraine for the gas prices, according to a AAA Utah spokesperson.
