Subpoena Issued for Spike in Gas Prices

State officials in Kentucky want to know why gas prices at Speedway stores spiked last Thursday. The Attorney General's office issued an investigative subpoena to the stores, saying Speedway is a trendsetter in gas pricing across Kentucky.

A spokeswoman for the company says the price increase was due to increasing wholesale prices on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Gas prices jumped 30 cents on Thursday in some parts of the state.
