NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- The price of gas is rising as 2013 comes to a close. According to a report by AAA Auto Club Group, the price for a barrel of oil rose to more than $100 last week. 

"There's a lot of upward momentum on oil prices right now and it's expected to continue into January," said Jessica Brady, AAA spokesperson, The Auto Club Group. "The jump in crude prices means more expensive gasoline. The increased demand is taken as a sign the economy is improving and fuels optimism that the growth will continue in the new year. Motorists will see gas prices increase for the next few weeks, before relief is in sight."

Prices for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Tennessee have jumped from a $3.06 average one week ago to $3.10 currently.
