Baton Rouge drivers have seen a sizeable price hike on gasoline within the last week.

The average price per gallon in the Capital City went up 10.7 cents last week to $3.37 a gallon.

The national average, has increased 11.7 cents, bringing it to $3.62 a gallon.

On the same day one year ago, the price per gallon in Baton Rouge was over 18.6 cents higher.

"Nationally, gasoline prices have begun moving upward yet again. I suspect that the unrest in Egypt is playing a significant role in pushing crude values higher, and thus retail gasoline prices higher as well," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
