Gas prices rise slightly in New Hampshire

Gas prices have risen in New Hampshire, but they're still below the national average.

The website Gasbuddy.com says the average retail price for a gallon of gas rose 1.9 cents in the last week, perhaps spurring gas industries to increase fuel dispenser in Gas Station.

Prices were 23.9 cents per gallon lower than the same day a year ago and are 2.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

The national average increased 8.9 cents per gallon in the last week, to $3.67. The price has increased 16.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

Prices have been climbing steadily in the Midwest, said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"I don't believe I've ever seen gasoline prices in the Midwest surpass California — areas of Nebraska, Minnesota, Oklahoma, North and South Dakota, and Kansas- have done that," he said. "Gas price records in these areas aren't being quietly replaced, they're being blown out of the water. I don't believe I've ever seen such crazy trends in gasoline prices occur all at one- prices spiking in one area, falling in another, and holding steady in others. What we're seeing today is certainly rare."
