Average retail gasoline prices continue to rise in the Dakotas.
GasBuddy.com reports that the average price of a gallon of gas is about $2.13 in South Dakota and $2.22 in North Dakota. South Dakota's average price rose 3 ½ cents over the past week and North Dakota's average jumped nearly 5 ½ cents.
Gas prices in both states fell below the $2-per-gallon mark in January as global oil prices dropped. But GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan says seasonal rises in gas prices are now well underway.
Gas in the Dakotas is still more than $1 per gallon cheaper than it was a year ago, however.
In Nebraska, gas is up almost 2 cents a gallon to an average of $2.26 per gallon.
