FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Gasoline prices have risen above the $2 per gallon mark nationally, but in North Dakota the average is slightly less than that.

AAA estimates the statewide average at $1.97 per gallon and GasBuddy.com at $1.95. Both say the average price fell about a penny over the past week, while nationwide it rose about a nickel.

North Dakota motorists are paying more than 40 cents a gallon less for gas than they were last year at this time.

Experts say gas prices are likely to continue rising as oil prices strengthen and refineries continue seasonal maintenance.
