Gas Prices On The Rise
iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The national average for a gallon of regular gas is $2.27, up eight cents from a week ago, but still $1.11 lower than this time last year, according to the Department of Energy.
Gas prices typically rise at this time of year because of refinery maintenance.
Another reason for higher gas prices may be a slight rise in the oil prices in recent days.
Oil and gas prices are still considerably lower than they have been in recent years and are expected to stay around those lower levels.
