Gas prices going up

Written by

STATEWIDE - Gas prices are on the rise across Maine, according to GasBuddy.

Prices increased more than 6 cents in the past week, bringing the statewide average to $2.73.

 

Gas prices in Maine are up more than 19 cents per gallon compared to a month ago but they are nearly 3 cents lower than they were this time last year.

 

Experts say prices tend to rise heading into the summer months, as gas stations switch over from cheaper winter blends to summer blends.
