Well that didn't last long.

So far in 2017, gas prices have strayed from their typical trends, AAA said.

Rockford's average gas price is $2.54 per gallon. That's unchanged from last week.

According to Gas Buddy's daily survey of 802 Idaho gas stations, the average price was $2.60 per gallon on Sunday.

"When oil prices rise, it becomes more expensive to produce gasoline", AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said.

But make sure to enjoy the relatively low prices while they last.

That is about 10 cents lower than last week's average and up 44 cents from the same time a year ago.

Yet again, Hardin County had the lowest average price in the region at $2.31, which passed Shelby County at $2.32.

AAA found self-serve, regular gasoline selling for as low as $2.43 per gallon and as high as $2.70 in Rhode Island.
