Gasoline prices increased in the past week in the Green Bay area as well as nationally, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.
The average retail price rose 8.4 cents a gallon in Green Bay to $3.69 a gallon, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 127 gas outlets in Green Bay. That's 29.8 cents a gallon more than a year ago and 46.9 cents a gallon more than a month ago.
On Tuesday morning, prices were up again to $3.76 a gallon, which was the state average, according to AAA.
Nationally, the average rose 11.9 cents a gallon to $3.68 per gallon. That's 42.2 cents a gallon more than last month and 16.7 cents a gallon more than a year ago.
"The steady climb of retail gas prices is likely to continue following double-digit increases in wholesale prices with fuel production tightening in the majority of the country's refineries," said GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst Gregg Laskoski.
