Gas prices expected to rise again in Montana

If you are planning on driving anywhere and look up from the pump at the price of gas, you might be noticing an uptick in cost.

According to the fuel price tracker Gas Buddy, prices are expected to climb for the sixth straight week across the country.

Right now, the average price of gas across Montana is resting at about $2.52 a gallon.

That’s up about five cents from last week and 16 cents since last month.

Those at AAA say compared to last year, despite the uptick, we’re still a bit lower.

“Unfortunately, we are [seeing an uptick,]” says Sergio Avila, AAA Montana spokesman. “We are getting into the busy driving season.”
