Madison gas prices rise in past week

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- According to a daily survey of 210 gas outlets in Madison, the city's average retail gas prices have risen 3.9 cents per gallon in the past week averaging $3.19/g on Sunday.

This compares with the national average that has increased 0.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.26/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Madison during the past week, prices Sunday were 13.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 3.1 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 1.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 8.9 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"While gasoline prices have seemingly remained virtually unchanged in many areas across the U.S. in the last week, that has meant that some areas are still seeing prices remain much lower than a year ago," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
