Maine gas prices up another penny

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — Gas prices in Maine continue to rise, but at a slower rate than the nation as a whole.

Price-monitoring website MaineGasPrices.com reports Monday that in-state prices ticked up a little more than a penny in the past week, to an average of $3.84 per gallon.

Nationally, prices rose almost three cents to about $3.72 per gallon.

The cost of gas in Maine is now seven cents per gallon higher than this time last year and 29 cents higher than a month ago. Nationally, prices have jumped 42 cents per gallon in the last month.

A company analyst says prices may linger at current levels for some time.
