Gas prices rise nationally for eighth straight week
Gas prices in Maine went up 7.5 cents since last week.
Maine (WABI) - Gas prices in Maine went up 7.5 cents since last week.
According to GasBuddy, the average for a gallon of gasoline is $2.67.
That’s about 24.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and just over 28 cents more than a year ago.
The national average is roughly $2.72 a gallon.
This is the eighth week in a row gas prices have gone up across the country.
An analyst with GasBuddy says the cold-weather related shutdowns in Texas are likely to blame for the surge.
