BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Seasonal changes at refineries are among the factors that have driven North Dakota gasoline prices up since hitting a 12-year low in mid-February.

AAA on Monday reported that the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas has edged up 23 cents to $1.84. AAA says $1.89 a gallon is the most common price found at the more than 450 stations it surveyed.

Despite the increase, the average price is still 60 cents lower than the in-state price at this time last year.

AAA says prices typically go up around this time of the year as refineries undergo scheduled maintenance and prepare to switch from winter-blend to summer-blend gasoline.
