In less than a week, drivers across Louisiana have noticed a sharp rise in gasoline prices.  AAA fuel analyst Don Redman says prices continue to rise right along with the high price of oil.

"You've got oil prices trading at over $76 dollars a barrel which is impacting the price for gasoline,'' Redman said.

Unfortunately, Redman doesn't see any relief any time soon.

''I think we could be staring at prices close to $2.75 and $2.80 as we get close to Thanksgiving and Christmas,'' said Redman.

Just a week ago we were paying just under $2.60 a gallon, Now it's jumped eight cents a gallon.
