Gas Prices Rising
Just as spring is setting in and cabin fever is on the rise so are gas prices. Gas prices in Montana have gone up about six cents per gallon in the past week, with an average of three dollars and thirty three cents per gallon.Petroleum Analyst Patrick Dehaan expects prices to continue to rise in Montana as gas prices climb to match the increase that we've seen in the last few weeks in the price of crude oil. Montana does remain among the cheapest locations in the country for gas. The national average for gasoline is three dollars and fifty three cents per gallon and did increase over thirty five cents in the last month.
