It sure seems like the gas prices at the local gas station that I fill up at are going up almost every day. The official word from says that gas prices in Maine have gone up by over six cents a gallon this past week. The statewide average is now at $2.28 per gallon.

The gas prices nationally went up a whopping eight cents per gallon to $2.23.

The lowest reported gas price in Maine is $2.13 a gallon in Kittery.

The lowest average gas prices are in Oklahoma at $1.94 per gallon and seven states still have an average of under $2 per gallon.
