BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gasoline prices are on the rise in North Dakota as the calendar turns to March.

GasBuddy.com reports that the average retail price of a gallon of gas in the state has risen more than 12 cents in the past week, to an average of $1.72. That’s according to a survey of nearly 500 gas outlets in North Dakota.

Despite the rise, the average gas price in North Dakota is still more than 60 cents a gallon cheaper than a year ago.

The national average increased about 4 cents per gallon in the past week, to $1.74. Senior Petroleum Analysist Gregg Laskoski says the rise was inevitable. He says the eight-month decline in prices at the pump has come to an end.
