AUGUSTA — Gas prices in Maine are up nearly three cents per gallon in the past week.
Price-monitoring website MaineGasPrices.com reports Monday that the average retail cost of a gallon of gasoline jumped to $3.51.
The national average also rose about three cents in the past week, but remains well below the Maine average at $3.27 per gallon.
Current Maine prices are a nickel lower than a month ago and still 17 cents higher than at this time last year.
