AUGUSTA, Maine — Gas prices in Maine essentially remained steady in the past week, but are still well above the national average.

Price-monitoring website reports Monday that the average retail cost of a gallon of gas rose just one-tenth of a penny, to an average of $3.49. The national average is $3.43.

Including the change in gas prices in Maine during the past week, prices are 51 cents per gallon higher than the same day a year ago and almost four cents per gallon lower than a month ago.

A company analyst says retail prices have remained steady despite the rising cost of crude because of lower demand. printed on August 19, 2017
