Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:

Shreveport- $2.79/g, down 1.5 cents per gallon from last week's $2.81/g.

"We've seen very little overall movement in gas prices over the last week with prices remaining near their 2021 highs as crude oil prices remain well above $70 on supply concerns and strong global demand," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "With energy in high demand ahead of the winter heating season and a surge in global demand due to COVID-induced imbalances, we're not likely to see a meaningful decline at the pump any time soon, but unfortunately, could see prices holding near these levels for the next few weeks."
