    Utah gas prices have risen 2.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.40 per gallon on Monday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 1,171 stations.

    Gas prices in Utah are 6 cents per gallon higher than a month ago, yet stand 21.2 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

    According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Utah is priced at $2.15 per gallon while the most expensive is $3.15 per gallon, a difference of $1 per gallon.

    The cheapest price in the entire country Monday stood at $1.12 per gallon while the most expensive was $5.04 per gallon, a difference of $3.92 per gallon.

    The national average price of gasoline has risen 6.5 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.62 per gallon on Monday. The national average is up 22.2 cents per gallon from a month ago, yet stands 2.1 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

    “Gasoline prices have increased in all 50 states in the last week as refineries continue working toward cleaner, more expensive gasoline, and as oil prices have continued creeping higher,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “There shouldn’t be any surprises that prices continue to migrate higher given the warnings in the past few months, though that doesn’t make it any easier for motorists to digest higher gas prices. Unfortunately, as seasonal issues continue to weigh on markets along with higher oil prices, it’s likely we’ll continue to be in this pattern for at least a few more weeks.”
