PORTLAND, Maine — A gallon of gas in Maine has risen by nearly two cents per gallon in the past week to an average of $3.59.

Even though the increase in Maine was smaller than the national average, the average retail price in the state remains 16 cents higher than the national average.

Price-monitoring website MaineGasPrices.com reports Monday that prices are nearly 40 cents higher than a year ago and about 15 cents higher than a month ago.

A company analyst says prices have traditionally risen in late February and March, so consumers should expect to pay more at the pump in the coming weeks.
