KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oil prices are staying around $100 per barrel and gas prices are often linked to those numbers, but this time gas prices seem to be rising independently. The current average U.S. gas price is $3.42 a gallon, according to Triple A, and experts say prices could climb higher as the market approaches the spring season. That’s typically the time when stations flush out winter gas to replace it with more expensive summer blends. The average right now in Klamath Falls hovers around $3.50.
