Madison area could see rising gas prices

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) – According to GasBuddy's daily survey, the average gas prices in Madison have risen about 1 cent per gallon in the past week.

The average gas of price yesterday was $3.61 per gallon.  The national average has fallen 1.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.65 per gallon.

According to the price website, the gas prices yesterday were 28.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and the national gas price is 15 cents lower than yesterday one year ago.

"The national average has seemingly found some relative stability in the last week," says GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

DeHaan also says, "While the national average hasn't seen much movement, but some areas, mainly in the Great Lakes States, could see the prices rise in the next couple of days as wholesale prices reverberate as refineries continue their maintenance schedules and the progressive switch over to summer gasoline."
