Milwaukee Average Gas Price is Higher than National Average

Gas prices have increased 2.3 cents per gallon in the past week in Milwaukee, according to Gas Buddy.com.

Prices are now averaging $2.57.

The national average increased 2.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.31.

"A majority of states saw gasoline prices jumping over the last week thanks to a upward move in oil prices as well as refinery maintenance season getting underway, constricting gasoline output," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com. "The jump was led by states in the Midwest- areas that GasBuddy had warned last week were ripe for hikes thanks to a confluence of refinery maintenance and outages. North Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and Oklahoma led with the largest increases, while areas of the West Coast saw continued relief at the pump. Some areas of the country are seeing hikes at the gas pump while others see continued declines."
