Gas prices rise across state

MGN

Gas prices are on the rise again across our state.

According to GasBuddy, prices at the pump have risen 1.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.38/g across North Carolina. That's still cheaper than the national average, which rings in at $2.52/g.

Despite the rise, prices are still about a 10 cents lower than they were one month ago in North Carolina and about 8 cents lower nationally.

GasBuddy Senior Petroleum Analyst Dan McTeague says we may see some relief in the coming weeks. "; March comes in like a lamb but goes out like a lion. There are early indications that gasoline prices are about to strengthen helped by a noticeable number of refineries out for maintenance and a stronger demand outlook than we saw last year."
