AUGUSTA — Maine energy officials say the price of home heating oil has risen by 3 cents a gallon in the past week.

The Governor's Energy Office said the average cash price for heating oil was $3.67 a gallon in its weekly fuel price survey Monday. That's 2 cents a gallon higher than a year ago.

As usual, southern Maine had the lowest prices and northern Maine had the highest.

Propane was selling for $2.76 a gallon on average, up 3 cents from a week ago.

Kerosene was selling for $4.12 a gallon, which was also up by 3 cents.
